I do not want to take away credits from Gauthier because I think he DID made some good moves but the trades with amateur prospect are all recommendations from Timmins. Timmins saw a good bunch of hockey from Holland and Bournival, before they were in our organization. Gauthier probably asked Timmins what prospect should we try to get from the Flames. No way Gauthier knew who they were before the trade. GMs are usually way too busy for that.

I realize it is pure speculation but I strongly believe it's Timmins' call on amateur prospects.
