I was not aware he'd been moved to the wing permanently. I understand Islanders fans not wanting to let him go. I know he has caused a bit of grief for the organisation (simply meaning the dread that he might have chosen the football route, I know a lot of fans were nervous about that) and it has been a long wait. I like the way he has developed and I think the Isles have a gem.


And aside from both players being huge, I don't see many similarities between Gauthier and Lee. Lee is a better skater, stronger, slightly more physical and has more offensive upside while Gauthier is bigger, better defensively and in my opinion has better hockey IQ. They don't play extremely similar styles.



At any rate, what it looks like is the Islanders fans are not willing to even suggest a deal? I can understand because he does have intriguing upside and it has been a long, steady wait with him. Thanks anyway.
