Of all the LHDs in the Avs system Gaunce has the skill set and temperament most suited to playing alongside EJ. He was LEM's top dman last season, but has precious little NHL experience. Could Gaunce handle the role? Could EJ step-up as a mentor to Gaunce? That's a heck of a "building from within" experiment to try, especially when Suter needs a player like EJ as his partner to be the top flight player he is.
