I would hardly call Guadreau sluggish in any way. While his first step needs work he's hardly a slug.

I didn't see him getting knocked around all that much in the WJ and he's certainly not getting knocked around at the colllege level.

I think your comparison isn't very good.

I think one great equalizer here is that Guadreau has a extremely high hockey IQ he finds open areas extremely well, and he has great puck and play anticipation.

It will be interesting to see where his development is after his college career ends and his teen years end.
