Canucks Facebook feed has it as the Canucks 2nd rounder this year, 33 overall.
TRADE ALERT - ‪#‎Canucks‬ have acquired defenceman Erik Gudbranson and Florida’s 2016 fifth round pick (NYI) in exchange for Jared McCann and the #Canucks 2016 second and fourth round picks.

Did we mention Gudbranson ranked third on the Panthers in hits (150), fourth in blocked shots (73) and was fourth in average ice time per game (20:06) last season and that the 2010 3rd overall pick ranked second led Florida defencemen in average ice time in the 2016 playoffs (26:54) in addition to ranking second on the team in blocked shots (8)? ‪#‎STUD‬
Gudbranson definitely fills a need in the physicality department, still seems like a fairly steep price though.

Gotta think he's got more moves to make, we can't be walking into the draft with just two picks in the first 120.

Yeah if the pick was next years, I am ok. Pissed that its this years pick.Big Tuna , Elmer gets one more year to tank and then he gets gassed. Hopefully he doesn't sign too many more dumb deals. Gudbranson should be a top 4 d man for the next 8-10 years. That pick stings though. He better damn well move a Hansen and or someone else to recoup a top 40 pick.

Draft Dubios and we no longer have to hear Blobbee go on about "Team Small"

I guess that means we are drafting Dubios for sure

TSN is saying 2017, Sportsnet, NHL.com and Canucks feed have it as this year. I'll go with what the NHL/Canucks are saying.
The Vancouver Canucks traded forward Jared McCann and a 2016 second- and fourth-round pick to the Florida Panthers on Wednesday night for defenceman Erik Gudbranson and a fifth-round pick in the 2016 NHL Draft.

was busy so couldn't more than the OP, 6'5", 3rd overall in 2010.

Defensive D man, can log a lot of minutes, looks like a top pairing man.

Yeah, I definitely don't mind picking up a 6'5 Dman with a mean streak. But McCann and 33 is a fairly hefty load.

Gudbranson will definitely make us harder to play against, but we won't be getting much offense out of him. He's a solid top-4 guy.

Curious as to why McCann fell so out of favour? Benning loved the guy. Was it the Sedin complaining about McCann and Virtanen off ice shit near the end of the season?

There's been a lot of talk about a bad attitude.

From before the 2014 draft... til present day.

But who gives a fuck... OMG we just got Gudbranson!!! Image

There had been a lot of talk in Florida about Gudbranson being their next captain...
