His abilities(taking a pass and doing something with it) at higher speeds aren't very good either. I can see him being a solid 3rd liner, but that is at his best.
Kesler had tools that Gaunce (from what I've seen so far) doesn't. Gaunce is simply not a dynamic player.
Whoever said the Taylor Pyatt comparison is bang-on in my opinion.
Yeah, I see Taylor Pyatt in terms of style as well, although I've only seen Gaunce in highlight clips. But if Gaunce can be a Pyatt with a bit of a mean streak, that's a great player to have. I always found Pyatt to be frustrating as hell to watch - for all that size, he is soft as butter.
