Lazar > Gauthier for sure.

People forget, but alot of folks were arguing between Lazar and Mackinnon in terms of who was the top forward in this draft at one point. His 38 goals, combined with everything else he brings, would make him a steal at 25. The lack of assists is concerning, but the other way of looking at that would be if he had better linemates, would he have had more? I mean, even if he had a 1:1 Goal/Assist ratio, he'd have had nearly 80 points in his draft year, which would be excellent, and he's probably be ranked over Monahan. So the question is, why so few assists? Especially from a center? I haven't seen enough of him to tell you.

Is he a top of the line 3rd line center who can snipe from the dot on the PP?

Or is he a legit top 2 center?

I think the Leafs snag him if he falls out of the top 20 though.
