I've read several proposals and I've seen a wide range of ideas on how much Gudbranson is worth. So just for fun, what is the value of Erik Gudbranson?

(No one else should be included in the proposals. Use Canucks players only)

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

Back on topic, (sorry for quoting myself but I wrote this in another proposal for Gudbranson-- this one was Lu plus 1st for Erik)

For every physical, big bodied D-man who may become a Chris Pronger, there's also the chance of being a Mike Komisarek (7th pick overall). Both were also noted for having an impressive physical package and is willing to hit anything that moves. Stays at home and keeps his game simple. Is also good at blocking shots and body contact. Adds leadership to any team (Erik more in the potential sense).

Of course, hopefully I'm wrong, but again big-bodied players with potential take long to develop and have pretty equal chances of flourishing (Kesler, Ryan; Getzlaf, Ryan; Pronger, Chris) or... not (see Jessiman, Hugh; Bernier, Steve; Komisarek, Mike) so it's not wise to trade for one of these guys with a starter AND a high pick.

One aspect that gets overlooked is the organization's depth. ie Erik Johnson, Luke Schenn. Both high draft picks. Both basically labelled untouchable at one point. Until other players developed and made them worth trading.

Gudbranson is not going to be traded. 1st because his potential still needs to be evaluated. And 2nd because FLA is not in a position that they can replace him internally yet.

But in a year or 2. If someone like Petrovic or Robak develops, then FLA may look to trade him for holes they need to fill in other positions.

Luongo + Tanev for Gudbranson + Markstrom would be a trade FLA rolls their eyes at this season but could be begging to make next season.

So in short. Trade now, won't happen. But that does not equal trade value. IMO.

With that trade we could potentially have another Luongo/Schneider situation in 5 years. And I don't Florida would want to trade 2 of their best prospects either. At this point I'd settle for something like Howden/Petrovic/Bjugstad/Matthias and a 1st for Luongo and Raymond.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

i dont think he makes much sense at this point. unless a deal with edler cant be made our top 4 is pretty set for a while. i dont see us getting rid of hamhuis or bieksa in the next few years and garrison hasnt played a game in a nuck jersey yet and just signed a deal to keep him here for a while. Then we have edler who just recieved allstar status and unless his demands are way too big he will definitely be resigned.

as i stated in another thread though, i wouldnt be too opposed to moving edler if it meant getting a future 1st line star like couturier+. If we could get someone to grossly overpay for edler then maybe we can make a package around luongo and overpay to get gudbranson...

something like edler schroeder to philly for couturier simmonds (highley doubt philly goes for it though)

then luongo tanev hansen for gudbranson mattias

i wouldnt do either of those deals on their own but the aquisitions in them combined make the players we give up expendable. It gives us a young talent filled team in the future, all while still remaining competitive today.

Well if we trade Tanev along with Luongo Gudbranson we'd free up a roster spot

Edler - Garrison
Hamhuis - Bieksa
Ballard - Gudbranson

Or Luongo, Hansen and a 2nd for Gudbranson and Petrovic, then we could trade Ballard for a pick

Edler - Garrison
Hamhuis - Bieksa
Tanev - Gudbranson

I would do the Tanev Lu for him deal in a heartbeat but i dont think they would. They second deal doesnt make any sense for them either because theyre giving up their future big Dman and another D prospect in petrovic.

I think they might bite at the idea of Luongo Tanev and Hansen. thats an allstar goalie, a future top 4 Dman(not as awesome as gudbranson but an ok replacement considering the rest of the package theyre getting) and one of the hardest working 3rd liners in the league who's also a dynomite pk'er signed at a very good deal.

IMO that is too much to give up right now and would hurt our team too much in the meantime. But getting simmonds in the philly deal would make the grit and heart hansen brings expendable.
