Plus, Gauthier's game at 17 isn't built on using his size, he plays more of a smarts and finesse type game. Using his size MORE will be part of taking the "next step" in development as well as shooting more(plus adding strength to make his shot harder).
His ceiling is somewhere between Jordan and Eric Staal, he may or may not reach it, but hard to pass up at 20 let alone 25. as I said earlier his late season "slide" might cost him 5-8 draft spots and he could be a huge steal at 20-25 overall.
Gauthier doesn't have the Staals competiveness. I see him going late first to early second round.
