I don't think Gauthier is quite as good a prospect as Couturier was in his draft year but this comparison does not strike me as fair. Keep in mind Couturier's draft year was his third in the QMJHL whereas this is Gauthier's first. I see him as a slighly poor man's Jordan Staal. Better potential than Hanzal and Antropov.
