Never meant to imply that and did say I was impressed by that aspect of him. I just find him less spectacular for his puck skills and more of an intelligent player. Which is usually a good thing too, players lauded for their puck skills tend to lack in the IQ area, whereas I see the opposite watching Gaudreau's offensive positioning.
