^ It's less about room on the roster and more about who I think will ultimately become a better pro. Gudbranson is my choice for that reason.
Bjugstad doesn't have the speed or grit to make me believe he will exceed expectations. He may very well top out as a 2nd/3rd line tweener, much like Gaunce. Gudbranson, on the other hand, has all the earmarks of becoming a dominant defenseman. Based on his right shot and size, he'll be given every chance to succeed to a higher pairing, while a slicker offensive player could easily push Bjugstad down the depth chart.
Gubranson's collection of skills is a lot rarer IMO... I'm saying this knowing Bjugstad can be a 6'6" 240lbs two way C.
