Where did I say that? My concern is his arrival in the NHL is dependent on many factors. Will the Flames have a slot for him to fill in the lineup, considering his size? St. Louis is a great example of the team not wanting to have too many small players in the lineup. The same trap could befall Gaudreau if the Flames already have a number of small players in the lineup. I see Gaudreau as being a player, but it may not be for the Flames. Size is important in the NHL and the Flames may use a player with the upside of Gaudreau to fill holes elsewhere. Hopefully Wiesbroad's influence will prevent that from happening and we'll make room for this youngster in the near future.
