The lightest guy among those you mentioned is at least 15-20 pounds heavier than Gaudreau, which is a huge difference. Nobody that is that small has had the impact in the modern NHL that people project Gaudreau will have.
What's your point?

Gaudreau isn't done growing nor is he incapable of gaining another 15-20 points in the next couple of years. No one is saying he can jump in the NHL today and start dominating.
