Vancouver wins this deal by having Tanev go to the Flames for way too much money.
Tanev is still passable defensively, but he's not great in that regard anymore, and he's a black hole offensively. Throw in a rapid decline, a playing style that doesn't age well, and a concerning injury histroy and this deal has little chance of being a good value. Tanev as a Brodie replacement is likely set up for disappointment. He will be a popular guy in the locker room, he is a warrior, and his play will likely get defended far past his usefulness, but his on ice value has virtually no chance of being in line with this type of money.
