A guy like Smid was drafted in 2004, high first round like Gudbranson, he just came into his own this past season in 2012.. It took 7 or 8 years, we are just seeing the tip of the iceberg with Gudbranson. With his personality and raw skills he is going to become a feared defender IMO... eventually. Of course a guy like Fowler is going to look better originally but I think this kid can become really good, maybe just not quite yet. It's actually great he plays in Florida and doesn't play in a place like Toronto where the spotlight for such a high pick is so glaring.
