Seven Teams Eyeing Chris Tanev

According to insider Elliotte Friedman on the 32 Thoughts podcast, numerous teams are in the mix for Chris Tanev's services.

«On Chris Tanev: Elliotte mentions Tor, Dal, TB, Van, Ott, Edm & Col as teams "swirling around him". Says he wouldn't be surprised if this ends sooner rather than later.»

While not all of these teams are currently in playoff contention, adding Tanev to their roster could significantly enhance their chances of a postseason push.

Toronto and Vancouver have emerged as frontrunners in the bidding war for Tanev's services, and a definitive decision on his destination is expected in the coming weeks.

Tanev's Valuable Contributions

Despite his modest point production of 10 points this season, Tanev's defensive prowess is highly valued. At 34 years old, he ranks among the NHL's top shot blockers and consistently sacrifices his body to keep opponents at bay.

With an average ice time of nearly 20 minutes per game this season, Tanev's reliability on the blue line is evident, despite facing competition from other defensemen on the Flames' roster.

Although Tanev may not boast flashy statistics, his gritty playing style and playoff experience make him a coveted asset for any team eyeing a deep postseason run. It's clear from the high level of interest that Tanev's services are in high demand across the league.
