B. Was just the 3rd overall pick 2 years ago

Gudbranson is a better player, who is younger and had more impact on his team this past season/playoffs.

Despres, as a Flyers fan, doesn't do anything for me. He has some offensive upside, but meh.
Gudbranson, on the other hand, is one player I hope the Pens do NOT acquire.
then you havent seen enough of Despres. I won't comment about the trade proposed because i have not seen enough of and do not know enough about Gudbranson to comment but Despres has never looked out of place in any chance he's had to prove otherwise....he will be a very solid NHLer.
