Very few guys put up huge points in the NCAA and then cannot handle the AHL. Gaudreau would be able to play right now in AHL. He wouldn't be dominant, but he wouldn't be eaten alive. A lot of guys who out up big numbers but later fail are usually 19 year olds in the CHL which is a lot different. I can't think of the last point per game underclass man who couldn't hack it at the AHL level.
