Also I was talking to our LHJMQ scout today & yesterday and he said that Gauthier is a better player than Mantha. When Mantha doesn't score he looks invisible, Gauthier is a great two-way player that reminds him of a hybrid of Toews/Jordan Staal. He also did tell that when Mantha sucks, Val'D-Or sucks so he is that important to his club.

Also guys for a second round selection, Laurent Dauphin is a perfect player for us. He is a very hard worker and goes to the dirty areas, he reminds me a LOT of Ryan O'Reilly, but has better offensive potential (in terms of when ROR was a junior as well). Won't be as good defensively compared to him or Danult, but still a solid two-way player.
The more I watch Gauthier, the more I am impressed. From what I have seen recently people expect him to be in the 15-20 range, I think he will sneak into the 8-12 range and end up being a really solid pick. For who I want the Avs to pick I would easily put Gauthier in my top 10.
