You would have Hartnell - Giroux - Ryan, Schenn - Couturier - Simmonds, Laughton - Gauthier - Cousins.
Yeah, a lot of people really like Gauthier. He's only 17 and he's already built like Keith Primeau. He's also averaging over a point per game in the Q and he's playing exceptional defense. If the Flyers draft him, then you know that the plan will be to have a top line eventually of Schenn - Couturier - Giroux; a second line of Hartnell - Gauthier - Voracek; a third Read - Laughton - Simmonds; and a fourth of Talbot - Cousins - Rinaldo/Wellwood/McGinn. Right now though, I think from a prospect standpoint, the wing really needs some attention (besides defense, which is an obvious). Another thing to watch for is defenseman Steve Santini, who they also really like. He's going to Boston College next season and he's been guaranteed top four playing time. Fantastic skating defenseman with offensive ability and a mean streak a mile wide. He's been referred to in some circles as Chelios-lite.
