I just bought his hat too. I'm cursed.

 

Let's say that puts him out for 2-3 months, and he isn't great when he comes back. Do we expose him or Sbisa for the expansion draft?

 

I didn't expect to ever ask that, but Sbisa is looking like a capable top 4, while Gudbranson has struggled and is now looking at surgery.

What is it with Canuck wrists lately? First Boeser, now Gudbranson?

 

Wish him all the best and hope he comes back better than ever.

Trade EDLER to the wings for MANTHA and a 1st

Protect both TANEV and SBISA

Expose BIEGA

 

problem solved :):)

I am not upset about this only because he is an RFA and frankly this will lower his re-sign value. He has not been spectacular by any stretch of the imagination and the last thing this team needs is for him to be signed to a 6 year $40 million deal or some crazy stuff. We have a lot of upcoming d-men in the pipe (Hutton, Stecher, Juolevi, Tryamkin) and Guddy better step up and be a leader cause that's what is expected of him.

I've had a feeling something wasn't right with Gudbranson. A wrist injury effects every aspect of a player's game and could explain the struggles he's had this year. I wonder when the injury happened. Gud look Guddy, wish you the best.

Boeser was on fire till he injured his wrist then really didn't even seem close to the player he is. It is indeed a very debilitating injury to a hockey player.

Edit:  the quote isn't coming up on my screen, so in case that isn't just my system, the post being quoted was the one from DonaldBrasher which said:  "

That's probably a common sentiment.  It may well lower Gudbranson's cap hit next season.  I wonder, though, about whether it helps the Canucks in the long-term.

 

If Gudbranson doesn't show well the rest of the season-or can't play much of it-then his value will be lower than it would have been.  Gudbranson and his agent would almost certainly then refuse to sign anything more than a one year contract to provide for the chance for him to only be at the relatively low contract for one season in hopes that in 2017-18 he would have a better season and so a larger contract starting the next season.  If the Canucks won't make a one year offer, he has the right to go to arbitration and get it that way.

 

The Canucks have a problem in that one more season gets Gudbranson to UFA status.  If they get Gudbranson on a one year extension for 2017-18 (say in an arbitration) then in the summer of 2018 he can go wherever he wants so the Canucks are at risk of having given up McCann, a 2nd rounder and a 4th rounder for a 5th rounder and one season of mediocre/hurt Gudbranson plus whatever his performance happens to be in 2017/18.  There would be a temptation for the Canucks' management to overpay to avoid losing him as a free agent.
