4 million is expensive for a bottom pairing D man


McCann played the wing a fair bit in the top 6 in Pitt.

He’d definitely be a top six guy here on the wing.

Nothing to really debate. I was correct on all three points

Gudbarnson is smiling friendly giant type. He doesnt really want to piss anyone off and probably lives a fuckin wicked lifestyle. I'd be like that too...cruising around in a huge motorhome smoking 10 gram bowls every hour laughing at everything.

Hes all "you mad bro...?" while planning on how to party in ibiza mid season and not get fired
I do hope you park after cruising before indulging in the 10 grams of BCs finest?

1. The Guds played 18 minutes per game in Van last season and 19 minutes per game in Pitts. (2nd pair icetime)

(btw how does that jive with Blob math that states "Player X Would Play Less Minutes on a Better Team") :lol:

2. McCann played 7 games in the top 6 last season as an injury replacement in Pitt

... not exactly what a sane man would call "a fair bit".

3. McCann would definitely play in our bottom 6 if he were still here

... he'd be well below the player Jimmy turned McCann into: Pearson.


SO much stinking shit flowing from the Blob, how do you live with yourself?!! :wow:

Dudbranson only played top 4 minutes here because it was the worst defence in hockey. At about the 30 game mark Travis had seen enough and hacked his minutes way back. He only played top 4 min in Pittsburgh because Letang was hurt. When the blue line was healthy he was back on the bottom pair.

McCann started on the 4 th line and finished up on the top line down the stretch with Crosby and Guentzel. His ice time was up and down for sure but his goal pace in Pitt was pretty impressive.

Even if he isn’t better than Person which is highly debatable, he’s still better than whoever the 5th and 6th best forwards are in Vancouver.

Also Gudbranson ranked fifth in ice time among Canuck blueliners last season.

The only one full of shit is yourself. Or your just a liar.
Edler, Tanev, Stecher, Hutton all played more minutes per game. Are you too stupid to comprehend that would make 44 5th in minutes per game?

Did Gudbranson get bumped back to the third pairing once Letang got healthy? Is this true? Big whoop he got there when Letang and Schultz were injured so he got big ice time which got hacked back big time when the better players returned from injury.

I already said McCann’s ice time was all over the place. Maybe he finds a home on Crosby’s wing. Either way he’d still easily be top 6 here

We weren't talking about who played more minutes on the Canucks, that's just you trying to move the goalposts.

You called The Guds a bottom pairing guy and the numbers say otherwise.

OMG you suck! :lol:

Shultz did not miss a single game the entire time Guddy was in Pitt... :eh:

Letang only returned for the last 2 games of the season + 4 playoff games.

Nice stories though, you should write porn with that imagination! :lol:

You're entitled to your opinions, personally I prefer math.

Show your math!!

Math isn’t your thing I guess. Fifth in ice time doesn’t put him in the top 4. Doesn’t matter when Letang came back. Gudbranson was on the bottom pairing when they were healthy.

Alex Edler- 24:34
Ben Hutton- 22:21
Chris Tanev- 20:10
Troy Stecher- 19:55

Erik Gudbranson- 17:59

In what world is Gudbranson playing top 4 minutes?

Yeahno I'm not going to be distracted by you moving the goalposts hither and thither, bro. :roll:

The large sample size numbers tell the truth:

Gudbranson's average minutes per game in Vancouver: 17:59

Gudbranson's average minutes per game in Pittsburgh: 18:58


You and I had a long debate a year ago about what top 4 dee numbers look like and we concluded they look like that^


McCann's highest ever average minutes per game in a season: 14:32

... and that right there is bottom 6 forward numbers.


You're embarrassing yourself, why don't you stop your squirming and admit defeat like a man for a change...

“17:59 is more than 19:55”

“Fifth in ice time puts him in the top 4”

This place is awesome
