And those numbers include last nights game I take it. Up until last nights game Gauthier was where I said he was. I'm not saying Gauthier is the end all be all of defensemen, he isn't, but he is a helluva lot better than some like to give him credit for. No, he is not an offensive dynamo. That wasn't why he was drafted. He was drafted to play physical and be a solid defenseman (you know, keep the puck out of the net).

And FDW, since we're talking about dodging issues and predictions, I notice you're still dodging Sutter's reliance on Gauthier in crunch situations like the last minute of the game when the Flames are protecting a lead? Oh, and I'll be waiting for Leopold to score those 40-45 points you predicted as well (talk about over-rating "talent").
