I didn't read all the stuff about Gauthier, but he is a very intelligent player and his play is all about positioning and vision. He has a good skating stride for his size and he always finds a way to make points without getting noticed.
To me, his biggest weakness is that he is not a gifted goal scorer. However, it is an excellent passer and uses his physical to protect the puck and push away opponents.
Some will not like him because he isn't a flashy player, but others will love him because he does everything pretty well. What could hold me back is that he might become a 3rd line player, a good one, but not a first line player as expected for a first round pick. He's the kind of pick from MTL, though.
