Gauthier played quite well in the last two games in the U-18, but was that enough to push him up ahead of de la Rose? Pre U-18 tournament TT liked de la Rose more than Gauthier without question..Gauthier did end up outplaying DLR in that tournament when it counted the most, but you cannot put too much stock into a couple of games though. I saw him three times live in the playoffs and he was pretty awful, and the reports from other scouts on Gauthier in his first few games at the U-18 were not flattering, to his credit he came on at the end, and I ended up ranking him ahead of DLR on my final list, but behind McCarron.
I figure at the end of the day it was either Burakowsky or Rychel..most likely Burakowsky. He was a top 15 talent..disappointing at the U-18 because he tried to do it all himself, but in his defence he didn't have a lot of skill playing with him.
