What? IMO it's good that YOU barely notice him, but I watch him often. He DOESN'T do noticeably poor things like Kuli often does. Kuli has made poor turnovers in front of the net, Guds hasn't. They both tend to get caught out of position, but I don't see it as much with Gudbranson. How often does any player make game changing hits? Stevens did, he's rare. Erik has laid guys out consistently and seperated them from the puck, and I'm sure made them think twice when he's out there. Kuli has laid big hits in one game. I'll take Kuli's speed, of course, but that's about it.

Erik raised his level of play as the season progressed and it continued into the playoffs, Kuli regressed. Guds underwhelming? Sorry, no.

I compared the two because I simply don't see signs of greatness, I see a guy who is what he is. An many of the smartest posters here (not saying youre not one) see the same.
