Chris Tanev has accepted a one-year contract with the Canucks for $2 million but he still isn't feeling the love from the organization.

Tanev, who established himself as a top-four defenseman last season averaging 20:44 in 64 games, to a bargain-basement $2-million, one-year deal.

Ottawa signed Cowen in September to a four-year, $12.4-million contract. There's also Washington's Karl Alzner, who averaged 12 fewer seconds and had one more point than Tanev last season. He just finished the first year of a four-year, $1
