I don't see how you can look at...
1) His play against Pittsburgh in the playoffs
2) His play to close out this season
3) His play in the World Championships
4) His domination of and consistent development in the AHL
and still claim that people are getting "too excited" over Gus. I think he can step in and be a top 4 defenseman next year; at the very least a replacement for Carle.
I do however think we can find a better PMD with our 11th via trade to bump him down to 5/6 with Grossmann.
Gustafsson is playing well. He may never be Timonen, but I think he can be a top 4 PMD in this league. People counting him out are doing so just out of spite.
