I don't see much similarity in McNally's and Tanev's game. Tanev is a puck mover and McNally is a puck rusher.

Tanev's strengths all stem from his hockey IQ, his ability to move to puck in a smart and efficient manner, and his skating. IMO, he is a stud defensively. Which is something I don't think i could say for McNally, based on the miniscule footage there is of him or the reports. McNally rushes the puck aggressively, often trying to out-deke opponents to the net and pushing the pace. But this does not really help his defensive game - i've read that he is undisciplined and will continually get out of position to make offensive plays. He's creative with the puck, but some say those plays won't fly in higher levels.

I liken him to a PK Subban's rushing style prior to his draft year, if anyone remembers that. I don't think his path will be smooth and fast like Tanev. A few years in College will help him adjust.

We talked about him in the prospects thread Part 6; his team won their league championship and i think he was named their MVP. He had another good year, dominated that Prep league.

Tanev's a pretty damn cool story. An undrafted college player who was signed at the age of 20 barely over 12 months ago who is now going to be playing in a possible cup clinching game.

You've got to wonder if his progress might make Vancouver an even more attractive location for undrafted prospects. Tanev and Volpatti both got a lot of time in the NHL (and the paycheque that comes with it) in the first year after they signed and Lack made great strides. Despite being a top team with great depth they've certainly allowed players to work their way up if their play warrants it.

Didn't lead to much but it was such a nice, simple, effective play...sky's the limit with this kid.

stop me if I'm getting ahead of myself here, but if Edler and Tanev could build some chemistry next year we could have ourselves a franchise pairing for the next ten years! Woooooo!
Me and a buddy of mine were talking about Tanev like 20 seconds before this play and how his name rarely pops up and how it's a good thing, just making all the simple plays and all that he does and then this play happens and I just go "See, that's what I'm talking about! Solid heads up pass."

I think you're getting ahead of yourself a bit, but I like where your head's at. Definitely a ton of upside once he fills out that frame. I can't wait.

Exactly. The best teams, even when contending, should always be looking to develop prospects into future stars and the Canucks are doing that in spades on the blue line. I just hope we can find another Pavel Bure in the next 5 years!

Anyone think the coaching staff from the Moose has better patience in their players (since it's AHL and they're dealing with young players) than the Nucks'? I remember AV crediting them for helping mold Hansen. In honesty, the last couple of years Hansen didn't have a fair shake and it was only this year had he got the opportunity to be played in every game. I remember he used to be benched for Bernier or some other player who was cold on the offense yet AV kept playing him. This also applied to Grabner, and I don't think he would flourish under AV. This is where I would like to critique his philosophy of dressing your best players and not based it on salary; which seemed to apply only to Ballard this year.

No doubt that Tanev's calmness and decision-making are even above Alberts' last night. I doubt Alberts would make that play where Tanev passed it to Glass. Alberts and Rome's downside is that they've been instilled with AV's system too stringently that they tend to make only those routine plays (flipping out the d zone or off the glass) that sometimes in doing so stops potential goal-scoring chances. Tanev has showed he has high hockey IQ. I think being coached under Moose's coaching staff also helped with his development and having played several NHL games during the regular season allowed him to adapt quickly.

What happened to the other 'What do we have in Chris Tanev' thread? Or do we need to make another one?

Anyway, Tanev was solid and looked very poised out there when paired with Alberts. What a guy. He's looked steady in every game he's played in, kudos to him.

Great post, good point about the AHL doing a great job of developing guys.

I keep clicking on this thread hoping that kidroll has made a gif of Tanev making plays with a cigarette in his mouth, but alas not yet.

We saw him being a human tonight but nothing major. Think it was him that lost an edge behind the net a la Ballard and got up to get back into the play.

Thought he was better at the end which is a good sign he can shake off some less than good plays.

Im surprise at well he plays the body both taking and giving hits.

thought this thread is worth a necro seeing as how tanev has been our best dman 7 games into this season.

wonder how much it would take to re-sign him after this season (he will be an RFA, not sure about arb rights). here's hoping he'll take a loyalty contract a la burrows and sign for 1.5m for another 3 seasons.

I say 1.2 to be honest.
He has great hockey sense, and he makes good to great passes, but he doesn't have a shot.
It is harder in the last game, but it is still pretty weak.

Tanev is worth around 1.5 million.. anything more and he's asking for too much.. He does have a pretty hard slap shot, well recently anyways, and I hope he hits the net more often now. Probably, our best defenseman overall in terms of playing style and consistency. Hamhuis is our best D but Tanev is like a 1b imo

Tanev is awesome, but I doubt he gets that much as a bottom pairing defenceman who doesn't score much. Most 16-18 minute RFA defencemen who don't put up points the past two years have ended up with cap hits around $1-1.2 million mostly on 2-3 year deals (Braun, Demers, Sauer, Lee, Butler, Peckham, Alzner, etc.).

I know what you are saying but in a world where UFAs Rome gets 1.5m and Alberts gets 1.25m I'd gladly pay a guy of Tanev's ability a 1.5m RFA contract. Oilers gave up a 3rd in this ultra deep draft for Fistric and $1.45m contract. The way he and Ballard playing it's almost unfair to consider them a 3rd pairing. Getting into a fight with Tanev over a couple of hundred grand doesn't seem worth it.
