I think Gudbranson could turn out to be a regular 30-40 pt. guy. He is good at getting his shots on net and he has a cannon of a slapshot. He was definitely drafted 3rd because scouts saw some offensive potential. That potential was also on display at the WJC.
As far as his defensive play, he had an inconsistent season as you would expect from a 19 year old defenseman. He looked like a beast in the middle of the season for a few weeks when he was playing on the top pairing with Campbell. He really ended the season well especially in the playoffs where like someone said he was playing 20 min./night by the end of the NJ series.
The kid is very young yet. I don't know why people are clamoring to put him into a box.
