Fringe Deal (May 26)

On Wednesday evening, the Vancouver Canucks and Florida Panthers made a trade, as the Canucks acquired 24-year old defenseman Erik Gudbranson and the Islanders' 2016 5th round draft pick and in return, the Panthers receive 20-year old forward Jared McCann, plus the Canucks' 2016 2nd and 4th round picks.

Neither Gudbranson or McCann were pool worthy players in the 2016 season, the defender was ranked 163rd in pool scoring with 9 points, while the rookie was 267th among forwards with 18 points.  A new locale and a new system may be able to help either player, but its hard to say right now.
