From what I understand his skating hasn't looked adequate even by AHL standards. Whatever the reason, this season has been a major step back for him--no reason whatsoever to call him up when he's not even the best defenseman for the Monsters at present. At the rate things are going I think even Gabriel freakin' Beaupre will get a callup before Gaunce does.

And while I agree he might be better than Zanon/O'Byrne, I still say you gotta get rid of one or both of those guys before you even think about calling up Gaunce.

And as I type this...Stefan Elliott is the annonced callup. Huh.
