Erik Gudbranson scouting report:

Assets: Has great size, physicality and leadership qualities. Can play a shutdown role with aplomb. Displays untapped all-around potential, as well, especially because of a good point shot.

Flaws: Needs to prove capable of staying healthy over the long haul, since he's battled both injury and illness during his formative years. Will drop the gloves but needs more work in that area.

Well, at least on HF Boards, some Panther fans aren't crying over the loss of their potential "future captain". I guess that's good enough for me.

Wouldn't this imply that losing Gudbranson isn't a big deal?

Don't like that we gave up our second this year. McCann wouldn't have been more than a 3c on this team with Horvat ahead of him and hopefully pld

^Exactly. I'm sure Benning is confident that either Tkachuk/PLD will be able to replace McCann

Milbury 2.0, worst Canucks GM in history. The guy should be a scout, he couldn't manage a gangbang in a whorehouse.

Dunno why people so pissdd about McCann being gone. He's more than likely a tweener for his career with a potential for a second line c. He can't play wing either. This technically makes our d better if we can drop sbisa or somehow trade gudbranson for the 4th overall.

Gudbranson should also be good for our division big dman

Ironic that this guy prides himself on being an excellent scout and then turns around and trades all his draft picks away like they're candy.

Edler was our biggest D man at the start of this season now hes the 4th behind Tryamkim, Gudbranson, and possibly Pedan if he makes the team. I like how our D is going but our scoring is seriously lacking and it didnt help by losing McCann.

Hopefully we make a big splash on FA day

Just saw this...I'm not too outraged.
More so about the fact that we gave up a 2nd rounder.

Well we've got a third overall pick...lol

I sure hope not. We need to continue developing our young players with another season of losing and being in the draft lottery.

Sucks that we lost McCann but I'm pumped about Gudbranson. One of the players I really wanted coming back our way when we traded Lu (the other one was Bjugstad)

I see what you're saying, but if you're good at scouting, quality > quantity and you can then turn your quantity into lower risk known quantities in more established assets. Though I've always maintained regardless how good a scout is, drafting 18 year olds is a crapshoot at best whether round 1 or round 7.

I like the trade. I don't see why everyone thinks we gave up on McCann. Sure he only had 1 year and everyone agrees he needs to grow bigger before he can better use his skillset. But you have to give up something to get something. McCann is not your 1c and he won't be your 4c. We already have more than enough guys to fill 2c/3c. If you give up a Lynden Vey, you're only going to get garbage back in return. We got back a legit real top 4 d-man who is still young, not a Sbisa top 4 d but one that can actually defend. I'm not thrilled we had to include the 2nd, but maybe part of that is due to the fact Van fans are typically overvaluing our own prospects?

On the other hand, it'd be pretty nice to have Bonino and Garrison on the Canucks roster right now...

I like how this D core is shaping up.

With the college signings/rodin/granlund trade/boeser looking like a stud I can see why benning moved a center.

Hank
Horvat
Sutter
McCann
Grandlund
Gaunce

Potential draft of Dubois.

Like Dbaz said, without the 2nd included it would have been a great trade. Right now its just "I can see where hes going with this"

Remember day 1 Benning has been talking about the gap of players from the Sedin era to the horvat era. Gillis gave away a lot of those picks and Benning has been trying to get the 23-26 aged player in the lineup. Granlund/Gudbranson/Etem/Larsen/Sutter. See anything in common?
