Update: Gudbranson rejects contract, back to juniors

Quote:
ot a chance to chat with Panthers asst. GM Mike Santos at the Face-off Luncheon and he clarified a few matters for me. No. 1, the three players placed on waivers Sunday – Andrew Peters, Michael Grabner and Joe Callahan, The 24-hour time period to claim them doesn’t begin until Monday so teams have til noon Tuesday to make their claims.

Santos admitted he’d listen to trade offers for Grabner but would prefer to hold onto him and have him hone his offensive skils at Rochester. He also said he made an offer to Gudbranson’s agent Monday morning but doesn’t expect to hear back until Tuesday. Santos said that even though top draft picks are slotted there is some wiggle room plus the Panthers have leverage and own the rights to juniors for two years. So if his agent doesn’t accept, Santos would have no problem sending Gudbranson to juniors for another year of maturing. He used Dmitry Kulikov as an example as in ‘what’s the rush?’ Sure, Kulikov had a solid rookie season but what did it get the Panthers but another early golf tee time?
I’ll call Goody’s agent and see what’s up…

Do you think Gudbranson should stay up and join Kulikov or go back to the juniors?
My guess is that they will go the 9 game route and take it from there.

Agreed if he signs. If not then its back to juniors for him. "Whats the rush?" is exactly right.

I agree, why waste a year of his ELC & allow him to become a FA at 25 (ala Bouwmeester) when this is clearly a rebuilding year?

His play should be the determining factor though, not money. If he does well enough, then he should play in the NHL.

This is a kid who actually enjoys playing for this organization and being a Panther. You don't mess that up and take his spot away solely for money. Bouwmeester still held a grudge at this organization years after he was drafted due to what happened at the draft (trading down). I don't want a similar situation happening with Gudbranson.

Yeah, why does it sound like they are trying to lowball him or something? That doesn't sound right.

So the decision comes within half an hour, correct?

Let him play. If he's made the team he's earned it. Nuff said.

Word is no deal for Gudbranson. He's going back to Kingston. More to come.

It will be interesting to find out why a deal couldn't get done. I think he earned it but we do have a lot of d-man. He'll be on the team next year.

Well, I'm annoyed he's not on the team. He earned it. But maybe it was the contracts talks that killed it. That seems unlikely.

Frustrating...more tanking. Greatt.

Budget restraints stopped Florida from giving Gudbranson the bonuses he was after. He made the team, but is now headed back to the OHL

no biggie, he wasn't going to be the player that pushes us over the line.

the good news is we get him for another year in the system... he's going to kick some serious butt next season.

So much for "earning" a spot on the team. LOL at this organization. As I said in the Grabner thread, this organization, Tallon or not, will be hampered by the budget and cheapness of ownership. We're talking less than a million for the max bonus right?

Wow, I'm really dissapointed.

There were 2 things I was looking forward to this season: Grabner, Gudbranson

... and now we ain't got ****.

Hopefully Marx gets some games.

That's pretty bad. He could make close to what, 3 or 4 mill with bonuses?

I'm glad he's being sent back to the OHL. It gives him time to work on his offensive game.
