Gudbranson is one of the young dman that I would love the Flyers to acquire. If his offensive game catches up with the other parts of his game, he will be a stud. Like others said he probably should have played another season in junior, but getting some NHL experience never hurts. He was inconsistent, but really what do we expect. I think he can be a 40-50 point defender with great positioning and leadership(peak potential). The one thing that worries me is the offensive part of his game though. If he doesn't fill out his peak potential, a top 4 defender with leadership qualities who puts up 20-30 points a year isn't bad. Also a lot of Florida fans believe he will be their captain one day.
Like the OP said in his second post, he is one of the most over looked young dman because of where he plays most likely.
Does suck for his development that he might be out till January.
