Eh, Gudbranson still has to prove he can dominate the OHL offensively. He's shown glimpses, but he's far from proven that the OHL is far below his talent level, at least not at this point in his development.

And like others have said, another year of junior would also let him work on his weaknesses against lesser competition, instead of against NHL competition that might hurt his confidence if he struggles against. Plus there's the whole WJC thing, which has springboarded quite a few junior careers.
