Things are always tense this time of year, but for teams like the Canadiens and Ranger, you can feel it more than usual. More than five weeks before the NHL ’s trade deadline , it appears unlikely the Calgary Flames will be significant players in the annual swap meet.

While the big defensive fish being dangled ahead of the NHL’s 2018 trade deadline are offensive dynamos like Erik Karlsson and Mike Green, the Vancouver Canucks have seen interest continue to rise on one of their own rearguards as Feb. 26 draws near.

General managers around the league continue to inquire about Vancouver’s Chris Tanev, according to Sportsnet’s Elliotte Friedman, though it appears the Canucks aren’t keen on moving the 28-year-old for anything less than a significant return.

“He’s hurt right now, which could potentially complicate matters, but what I’ve been told is that the Canucks have told teams — including, I believe, Toronto — ‘If you’re serious, it’s going to take a special offer to do this,’” Friedman said during the Headlines segment of Hockey Night in Canada on Saturday.

Tracking every major 2018 NHL trade rumor heading into the deadline

  Tracking every major 2018 NHL trade rumor heading into the deadline The 2018 NHL trade deadline is rapidly approaching. On Monday, Feb. 26 the NHL will officially close its doors on trades for the remainder of the 2017-18 season, meaning we have two weeks of potential madness left. NHL trade deadline day is usually not as crazy as the NBA’s deadline is, as most major hockey trades happen — if at all — in the days leading up to the deadline. The rumors, however, seem to churn out new names every day as we get closer to the Feb. 26 deadline.As such, we’ve compiled a complete list of trade rumors from Feb. 1 onwards about the biggest names potentially hitting the trade market.

The NHL trade deadline is coming up, and Vancouver Canucks defenceman Chris Tanev still seems to be a topic. Over the past weeks, we have covered different trade scenarios for the Vancouver Canucks that we could see as the trade deadline nears.

Will GM George McPhee make any big additions ahead of the trade deadline ? One big trade deadline question for every NHL team . Defenseman Chris Tanev (28, UFA 2020, .45M, modified no- trade )?

“I think the Canucks realize still that even though they are rebuilding, you want to give your young players a chance. And you’ve got to be serious, really serious, if you want to get Tanev out [of Vancouver].”

After finishing with the second-worst record in the league last season, the Canucks have enjoyed a modest revival of sorts in 2017-18. While team-wide success continues to elude them, Vancouver has seen rookie Brock Boeser emerge as one of the most promising goal-scorers in the game, positioning himself as a Calder Trophy favourite with 27 tallies to his name thus far.

Tanev has followed suit with a modest improvement of his own, posting 11 points through 38 games this season after putting up 10 points through 53 games in 2016-17. Though that sum isn’t putting Tanev in the running for a Norris Trophy, it is enough to match the best points-per-game pace of the eight-year veteran’s career.

The long-time Canuck has two more seasons left on his five-year deal, carrying a cap hit of $4.45 million and a modified no-trade clause, according to CapFriendly.

Which teams hold most draft picks after 2018 NHL trade deadline? .
For the first time in two years a first-round pick was moved on NHL trade deadline day — and, in fact, a record was set for how many were moved. Picks, of course, are the real currency on deadline day as most sellers want to pile up these lottery tickets in a bid to rebuild or retool, while contenders who are aiming to bolster their lineups will give them up only in the right conditions. Vancouver Canucks general manager Jim Benning, who had a rental scorer in Thomas Vanek, could only get a prospect and not a pick for the veteran.
