As long as meathead GMs in the NHL exist, Guds will always get a decent payday from someone.

This has got to be all Darryl Sutter so I hope he has some master plan up his sleeve. This makes no sense when you could've signed him for 800k in a month.

So

Hanafin-Tanev
Valimaki-Andersson
Zadorov-Gudbranson

If I was throwing out that kind of money would have went for Demers

Ryan murray only makes 50k more than him. There couldn't be a market for Gudbranson at Sept 10th, how did he pull this contract

He's a RHD with a pulse. That means he's worth $2 million a season. At least that's what I've learned this off season.

They played the Sens like 10 times last season, and their takeaway was "yeah, I gotta get me some Erik Gudbranson".

Unless you're Tony DeAngelo... (I know, unique circumstances, but he's still an extremely talented player)

Also, this isn't even the most egregious example of that. At least the Guds deal is only a year. Tucker Poolman got a 4x$2.5M AAV from Jim Benning...

Hockey parents, get your kids to shoot right-handed.

To be fair didn't the Sens win the season series against the Flames? Or at least embarrassed them a few times?

I'm looking forward to none of the Flames blueline pairings being able to handle the Oilers top two lines for another year in a row.

He's a big right handed defenseman. GMs have a strange infatuation with them that seemingly will never die.

You could’ve given a practice pylon boxing gloves and it’s would've filled the same role, much cheaper too

Yeah the Sens went 6-3 against Calgary in spite of Erik Gudbranson. He was still dog****

I don't doubt that but managements located in Alberta have an imbalanced view on truculence versus actual on-ice utility.

I very much believe that the overall W/L had an influence on his AAV.

The cap isn't the biggest issue. A vet making under 2 mil isn't the end of the world. The issue is he's an actively bad defenseman
