Chris Tanev is attracting plenty of interest from other NHL GMs, but Jim Benning is reluctant to move the talented defender.
"I wouldn't be doing my job if I didn't listen and see if it (trade) is worth it, but it's hard to find good defensemen," said Benning. "Especially defensemen who are mobile and move the puck. I'm not shopping Tanev or bringing his name up in conversations with other GMs. They bring up his name. Unless it would make sense for our future, I'm not trading Chris. He means so much to our team. And we're not looking to do anything with Alex (Edler)." Tanev and Edler had injury issues in 2016-17, but it appears the teams still has confidence in their abilities to bounce back.
