He is ranked 13th by Central Scouting, 16th by Future Considerations, 17th by the War Room and he's from Quebec to boot. He says "I know I need to use [my size] to an advantage more often, though. I use it now, but not as much. I need to use it more in battles and in one-on-one situations along the boards and with my reach -- that's another area I can improve", also about being ranked high he said this "It's always nice, but I still want to get better," he said. "I know I'll have to work hard." I can only hope that a player of this magnitude falls to the Habs at 25th and anyone other than Nostradamus or someone with a crystal ball, should run to the podium screaming his name if he is available at 25.
Theres a lot of 'paralysis by analysis' going on and probably will get worse in the next 3 weeks.
I agree totally with your analysis...Gauthier is a can't miss at 25. If I am TT, I would pick Gauthier without hesitating.
