Presenting the most underrated top pairing defensive Dman in the game...Chris Tanev!
He's pretty good. He makes our defense not suck.
Tanev reminds me of Keith until he hits the offensive zone
Should remain an affordable defenseman for the Canucks (given that offensive D tend to be the ones that get overpaid)
An elite shutdown dman. It's a shame he's being wasted here like the Sedins. Hopefully he plays strong until his early 30's when this team will hopefully be on the upswing.
Just wish he didn't get stapled on the forecheck as much as he does, the guy takes a beating with hits and blocked shots.
He's pretty good at that hockey thing
bless you macedonian fetisov
One of the brightest notes in today's game.
He played a great third period offensively.
I know it's very early, but Tanev is another Canuck veteran who already looks like a different player than the guy who played for Willie.
For some reason in the last couple of years Tanev just got abused and blasted along the wall.....it was like when he got back to a puck, there seemed to be no outlet available and he often just ended up having to eat the puck.
But so far he's playing more like he did a couple of years ago.....avoiding hits with quick and accurate outlet passes....and driving the play up-ice....Canucks already spending less time under siege in their own zone.
5 years and 8 months ago... and we're on our second Tanev thread.
Maybe this is the year he can stay healthy...
Pretty sure there was a "What do we have in Chris Tanev?" thread back in 2011.
There's not much controversy around one of the most consistent Canucks players of all time. He aint no Granlund or Virtanen.
Yer probably right. I blame the mods.
What a bunch of idiots those "people" are, if I can even call "mods" people, yuck.
Credits to him and Edler.
Solid game as always.
He's proving on a daily basis that he's so underrated around the league.
Really nice to see how he's active offensively under Green's system.
Any word about this beast?
He has simply been outstanding this year. Reading the numerous stupid Leafs fan proposals and comments on the main board makes me want to scratch my eyes out.
Tanev is a demi god and there’s nothing aside from the big 3 on toronto i would consider trading him for.
They don't watch him, act like they do, and bring up his 'lack of points' to try and prove their points.
Somebody should put together a compilation of all of his great, under appreciated defensive plays and educate fans around the league as to why he's so important and rated so highly here...
Call it the "Tan Pill".
Funny how their outlook has progressed hey?
>No opinion of Tanev
>Saw Tanev play with Reilly in WHC
>Wow he's underrated and would look great in TO. How about Carrick and a 1st?
>How could you decline that trade? Tanev isn't good enough to get anything more! Plus now he's injury prone!
>Tanev is so ovverated, made of glass.
>Zeitsev is much better, we don't even want Tanev.
Seriously it's like half of them have personality disorders
