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.
Just looking at McKeen's Nov-12 listing and they too believe this is the year of the Q - they already have 7 in the top 30 (MacKinnon, Drouin, Fucale, Erne, Carrier, Gauthier & Mantha) with possibly more to come (Duclair, Zykov e.g.) However, I doubt Gauthier drops - McKeen's already has him a heady #17 and he is just adjusting to the league. My take on Gauthier is now up on TheHockeyWritersCombine.

They also have Adam Erne at 21 which I think is too low. If he continues to develop, he could push top 10 - just my humble opinion but I like him a lot.

Update: Erne with 3 goals so far tonight.
