Blue Jackets Rumors: 2 Potential Landing Spots for Erik Gudbranson

The Columbus Blue Jackets have a surplus of defensemen, and a few of them have been picking up some steam in the rumor mill. Erik Gudbranson is one of them, so let’s discuss two teams who could consider bringing him in now.

Chicago Blackhawks: The Blackhawks are heading in the right direction, but it is clear that they could use more experience on their blue line. Due to this, they certainly could consider bringing in Gudbranson, especially if they earn a sweetener or two for taking on his contract.

San Jose Sharks: The San Jose Sharks need to make some changes to their roster if they hope to improve. Their defense, especially their right side, is weak right now, so perhaps they could be open to taking on Gudbranson’s contract. He would fit on their second pairing and be a key contributor to their bottom pairing.

Let's see if either of these two teams end up landing Gudbranson from here.
