Not to say teams may not like Gauthier just because of what he brings to the table, but I do think he should go in the top 30.
There will be at least 9 Euros in the 1st round,another 3-4 from the USHL,that leaves 17-18 1st round picks.OHL & WHL should have 7 each,leaving 4 picks for QMJHL.MacKinnon,Drouin,Carrier,Erne, Fucale,are five 1st rounders,then there are Gauthier,Duclair,Graves,Sorenson,Mantha,Zykov,Lafo ntaine and Morin in the 2nd round.Plenty of great talents in this draft and the OHL & WHL always have their late risers,it promises to be interesting with the Habs 4 picks in the top 60.
