And he plays selke like defense. Gaudreau isn't a liability defensively, but he's average at best IMO. It just feels like the hobey has been gaudreaus all season and I'm not sure why.
Sorry I didn't mean to come off as homerish, I don't think he will win the Hobey Baker, but when you said he wasn't blowing everyone out the water I thought you meant he was only middle of the pack, and I think it is pretty evident that he is in elite class for offensive players in the NCAA.
I think people have pumping up Gaudreau because of a lot of hate he has been getting over his size and so many Flames fans (such as myself) like to point out his success. Personally I think it will go to a player like Knight who is more defensively aware, I hope that now that JG has the offensive game figured out he can take another step as he has done this year on his defensive game and become a better 2 way player.
