Mike and Jason discuss the Gudbranson extension in-depth with Pierre Lebrun, and get the view of listeners in What We Learned
LeBrun: It's clear Gudbranson likes it in Vancouver
Pierre LeBrun says it's pretty clear Erik Gudbranson wanted to stay in Vancouver rather than becoming an NHL free agent. Pierre says sometimes we can't see the forest for the trees and the simple explanation is Gudbranson did not want to leave the Canucks.
Woodley: That's a lot of money if Gudbranson's a third pair defenceman
Kevin Woodley points out that Erik Gudbranson has been playing decently on a pair with Alex Edler, and suggests if Gudbranson can do that then his three-year deal will be okay value. But Kevin also says Gudbranson, to this point, hasn't shown the staying power to do that...and so becomes a highly-paid third-pair blue-liner.
