      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth

[Trade] Canucks trade Jared McCann, 2nd-round pick, 4th-round pick to Panthers for Erik Gudbranson, 5th-round pick

Recommended Posts


Vancouver, B.C. – Vancouver Canucks General Manager Jim Benning announced today that the club has acquired defenceman Erik Gudbranson and Florida’s 2016 fifth round pick (NYI) in exchange for Jared McCann and the Canucks 2016 second and fourth round picks.


Gudbranson, 24, spent the 2015.16 season with the Florida Panthers, collecting nine points (2-7-9) and 49 penalty minutes in 64 games. He also appeared in six playoff games. The Ottawa, Ontario native ranked third on the Panthers in hits (150), fourth in blocked shots (73) and fourth in average ice time per game (20:06). The 2010 3rd overall NHL draft pick ranked second on the Panthers and led Florida defencemen in average ice time in the 2016 playoffs (26:54) in addition to ranking second on the team in blocked shots (8).


The 6’5”, 216-pound defenceman has collected 43 points (11-32-43) in 309 NHL regular season games over the span of five seasons with the Panthers.


On the international stage, Gudbranson earned a silver medal as a member of Canada at the 2011 World Junior Championships. He also won gold at the Ivan Hlinka Tournament in 2009.

2nd this year? Jesus 


I personally don't like what Benning is doing. He's trading away our younger prospects with players in the 24/25 range. Thinking it'll make the rebuild a little faster, getting matured players. I don't like that, personally. People here will obviously think differently. Iunno, I don't like Bennings trades. I want to see our players develop in our system, and play lights out with the Canucks. Not develop for a couple of years, and then boom traded for a player 2-4 years older. 


We're all praising his drafting(which is definitely really good), but what players will he have left to draft with him trading away a lot of our picks? How many has he traded, 6 I think? And we've received what? 2 or 3 back? 



Second edit: This trade though, isn't bad. I'm more mad about losing the 2nd and the 4th, than losing McCann. I like Gudbranson, and our D definitely just got waaaaaaaaay more bigger. I'm excited for him to lay it down on McJesus, Hall and Johnny G. This doesn't make how I feel about his GMing different, I still don't like what he's doing. Just this one time, I'm good.

Really not sure what I think about this. Hamhuis is definitely not coming back,

Edler, Tanev, Gudbranson, Tryamkin, Sbisa, Larsen, Stetcher, Pedan.

not a fan of moving that 2nd. Both players and swap the picks would be enough. Too high a price, don't like the price, the return is what Vancouver needs though.
