Canucks continue to address the "need" for toughness.
With Aaron Rome shelved for about a month, it's Tanev's turn to see the bright lights of the NHL. Given his 1 goal and 9 points in 39 AHL games this season it's fair to say that he will play bottom 6 minutes if he gets a shot with the Canucks.
To get to know Tanev a little better I had asked Ron Goldberg from Rochester Institute Of Technology about the late-blooming d-man last June when the Canucks acquired him.
