Though we don't really know if Gauthier/the organization did anything to convince them, but it looks like we've been a lot more active with Gauthier.
I think Avtsin's team folding helped matters a bit, plus he did seem eager to want to come over, since he actually showed up for events over here. either way, good on PG to get him inked.

Leblanc I wasn't surprised to see go the Juniors based off what they gave up to get him, unless they just rolled the dice, that's a lot to give up for someone if they had no thought of going to the Q.

Tinordi I thought he would go to London because of how bad the Hunters seemed to be after him and I know that Gainey is close friends with Mark Hunter from their playing days as I had heard it was Gainey that convinced the Hunters to pick Kostitsyn in the import draft.
