It's not a given that Teravainen will grow to be any bigger than he is now. He has a very slight frame; usually a small guy is always gonna be a small guy and at 18 you're usually done growing. He'll get a bit stronger as Gaudreau will too, but it's not a guarantee that it will be anything major.

I have no doubt that Gaudreau is the better pure scorer. He can undress a defenseman one on one, take it to the backhand and go top shelf like it's easy. He scored a goal at the WJC's like that, he hit the cross bar like that, he scored a goal in the NCAA Championship game like that. His backhand is as good as his forehand and both are very accurate. He's also proven to be a very clutch player and consistently an MVP type player; a reputation that Terevainen has yet to build for himself. Gaudreau is also a great playmaker which goes unmentioned by his critics in this thread.

Gaudeau has a long list of accolades, so anyone saying that this is all just off of one tournament is either amazingly ignorant, or just being a troll.
