That's a pretty big return for Gudbranson, who isn't very good. And who can be a UFA as soon as July 1st, 2018.

Canucks are going to have to sign him long-term at UFA price just to keep him.

Cash or Czech?

One reason #FlaPanthers traded Erik Gudbranson: told he turned down four year deal worth $4.5m per before taking one-year bridge at $3.5.


He wasn't going to be a major factor for Panthers with all of their youth on D in Eklblad, Matheson and Petrovic. Plus after shipping out all of their picks at the deadline, Florida needed to restock. They got an excellent prospect in McCann to boot.

He's a slightly more mobile and handsy McIlrath.
