Gaudreau has really good skills with the puck, to be sure, but his ability to disappear in coverage and then be exactly where he needs to be to finish the play is something you cannot teach.
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.
