in the 2010 draft i wanted us to draft Fowler. I've never been shy about saying that. I was Gudbranson's biggest critic on the Panthers board this past season and was constantly bashed over there for it. the first half of the season he was absolutely awful. terrible, constant turnovers and poor positioning.
as the season wore on he got better, alot better, to the point where, when Garrison got hurt for two games in the playoffs, Gudbranson is the guy Dineen tapped on the shoulder to replace him on the top pair with Campbell. as a 19 year old....in the playoffs. and he did well with the assignment.
i'd still probably rather have Fowler at this point, but i'll be the first to admit that Gudbranson improved ten-fold as the season wore on and if he continues to improve in that fashion, he could be a pretty damn good d man himself.
