To answer the OP's question, I think Gudbranson has a lot of tools (size, shot, mobility, character, etc) and if he puts them all together he could be a big, physical two-way, 25-min top pairing D -- a poor-man's Shea Weber (he won't score as much even in the best case scenario). For that to happen, he'll have to demonstrate greater confidence with the puck and establish himself as a threat on the PP point. If he adopts a purely defensive mindset, he will be a solid stay-at-home D-man. These are the extremes. The most likely scenario is somewhere in between, perhaps close to a Braydon Coburn.
