It's actually more of a stark contrast than just the position difference (i.e. wing versus defense). Gustafsson's numbers are based on three years (he's only a junior), whereas Testwuide was a senior. In Testwuide's defense, he had an awful junior year at CC. Testwuide is a really late bloomer. I would expect he has 2-3 years in the AHL ahead of him before he makes to the NHL (if he does).

Note - I hope it's OK that I'm posting here even though I'm not a Flyers fan. I just happen to follow NCAA hockey quite closely and figured I'd offer what insight I could.
