He sucks look at his stats

Gudbranson has played 309 career games with the Panthers since being drafted third overall by the team in 2010. The 24-year-old has 11 career goals and 32 career assists.

Lol first caller to 1040 "fire Benning, this franchise is finished. "

Love the trade, Mccan seemed like a pussy, bottom 6 softer center, never going to develop into that top tier center with his skill set imo

Benning gets a +1 from me

Who needs Erik Karlsson when we have a meat and potatoes kind of player in Erik Gudbranson?

Knowing GMJB, he probably traded for the wrong Erik.

McCann is 19 years old. You don't give up on an offensive upside player like him after 1 season where the entire fucking team sucked ass.

Dealing from a position of strength if you don't see him in the top 6 in the next 3-5 years I guess

Position of strength?

We just traded McCann, 2016 2nd round, 2016 4th round

for

Gudbranson, 2016 5th round

There is no way in hell that Gudbranson is worth McCann, 2nd, and 4th rounder. The 5th rounder that Florida threw in was a fucking mercy pick.

Gubranson is a good 2nd pairing shutdown defenseman, reminds me a lot of old school Luke Richardson/Uwe Krupp, but McCann and the 33rd overall pick for him isn't a good deal, especially for a team in need of a massive rebuild. Maybe if this was just McCann for Gubranson it would be ok, jeebus Benning wtf.

This seems to indicate they aren't going to go with a proper rebuild and will try to sign some UFA vets to make the playoffs next year, I feel bad for Canucks' fans.

he is a big boy, 6'5" 215lbs, we may say we got ripped off right now but Benning is making our D big and I called that shit yesterday when I said he's going to trade for a dman instead of signing one by free agency.

He's a big boy that can fight, Don't know too much about him. But Benning is definitely stacking that defense with 6' 5"+ monsters. I can't hate the trade but can't love it either. Mccann is pretty weak as bottom 6 center.

I guess if you want to be on top in the west your gonna need some big D to face the ducks, sharks, and kings big forwards.

Look at LA, they play a physical game but got throttled by SJ in the playoffs.

Need those big bodies on the team.

Disagree. McCann has more bite and competitiveness than Virt. It's just that he lacks the physical tools that Virt has. Remember the game early in the season when we got blown out by Anaheim. He didn't back down from Getzlaf at all.

From what I'm seeing he's actually a fairly good defensive dman, however giving up that 2nd rounder...

I could see him on the 2nd pairing. Looks like we may have seen the last of hammer

Stud dmen take longer to develop remember? srs-semisrs
He's a big body with a hard shot. You can't teach size. He's more defensive-minded so I don't expect to use his stats as a measuring stick.

I guess Mccan was sort of expendable with Henrik, BoHo and Sutter occupying the top 3 lines. We just traded for Granlund too. However we did pay a bit too much, but given JB's resume so far. My expectations were low and he exceeded them lol.

JB is gonna go on the podium and say something along the lines of , "we're not sure if Jared's productivity will translate well into the NHL. We had a year to assess his skill and decided he is not a good fit for our organization. We believe Gudbranson will be a foundational player on our blue line and will help us greatly for battles against the Pacific Divsion."

Given our shitty luck, watch Gudbranson be hurt for 75% of next season.

Gudbranson is also an RFA next season. He signed a 1 year 3.5 mill contract not too long ago.
