The Vancouver Canucks have long been interested in a reunion with Chris Tanev, but with less than $15 million remaining and holes elsewhere in the lineup, Patrik Allvin would have to get very creative to bring back the shut down D.

On the Sekeres and Price show, former Canuck and NHL Analyst Frank Corrado suggested that perhaps that could be done by giving Tanev a longer term offer than a player of his age -34 years old- would generally get.
Corrado says while a contract like that is risky, it's a little less so in the case of Tanev.
If I'm a good team and I want to win, I would be willing to tack on extra years for Chris Tanev... there's a one way ticket at some point to old Robidas Island.

Corrado says given his injury history, a player like Tanev is almost sure to end up on LTIR towards the end of a long term deal, and would be less likely to cause cap issues down the road because of that.
Theoretically, that could allow a contender to get Tanev at a lower number.
The show's hosts agreed that it's a near certainty Tanev will eventually retire due to injury, so the risk is lower than some players.
A similar player in Dylan DeMelo was re-signed by the Jets for 4 years at $4.9 million per season, at Tanev is likely looking at a shorter term contract but the AAV could be higher.
