Pretty much have to echo this. Gudas has grown even from what he was last year. He's +15, positionally sound, always finishes checks, takes hits to make plays, has above average skating skills and will surprise you with his hands and creativity. There have been skating moves and passes he's pulled off this year that make me double-take actually. He's obviously not Barbs when it comes to rushing the puck up the ice, but he isn't nearly as far behind as many would suspect. He'll be a fan favorite wherever he plays (beard + physicality). Offensive Flair: Barbs, Taormina, Gudas.
