'Cause I know, I do. Not that Gauthier is a bad prospect....but the reality that both guys bring a 2-way game yet, Poirier shows more some natural offensive instincts makes him more appealing despite the fact that Gauthier has such an attractive size.
I like Poirier but I think if we can get Gauthier with our 1st...or even with Calgary's 2nd it could be a huge steal. I think he is disadvantaged a bit given that he is in his 1st year in the Q, plus he played a ton early on(PP PK tough faceoffs etc) and his game has suffered the last month or so. Guys like Poirier Mantha etc have a year + under their belts and are late birthdays so more advanced physically also.
I think Gauthier can legitimately be a J.Staal type.
