I can think of a million reasons why this deal won't happen but I'll give you one reason that it could. Gudbranson is a big physical defenseman who likes to hit and take no prisoners. Problem is, the refs are penalizing him for exactly that type of play. If you believe the NHL is moving into a less physical phase, then Gudbranson could rapidly become a dinosaur of a past era trying to play in the modern NHL. A NHL that a blueliner must defend by positioning and not size and physical play. If you believe that, then trading Gudbranson would make sense. Of course you would have to find a team that believes that is a lot of hogwash to get value for him.
