I think you misunderstood his post, I think he was talking about being good value for a mid-late 1st. Not the most valuable player in the draft.

Rookie forward Frederik Gauthier of the Rimouski Oceanic in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League is expected to miss two weeks while recovering from a broken jaw.

My take on Frederik is now up at TheHockeyWritersCombine.

Incredible game tonight between Rimouski and Baie-Comeau, currently 4-4 on OT. Zykov tied it @ 19:59 of the 3rd.

Gauthier 1g, 2a, 3pts, +3. First game I seen him take the initiative in creating plays - scored an incredibly impressive short-handed goal - if (and its a big if) he plays like tonight he is top 10 but he has to do it consistently.

Samuel Morin is starting to impress me as well - his skating appears to be better and he scored a beauty goal as well.

Update: Baie-Comeau 5 Rimouski 4. Baie-Comeau wins on a shootout out goal by Valentin Zykov.

I watched the game as well. Gauthier just makes a ton of smart plays. Great shot on the first goal I believe to create the rebound.

CH_WillyPalov Unless I missed something, Frederik Gauthier with the best result in 'transition agility.' very impressive for a tall player.
http://twitter.com/CH_WillyPalov/sta...15520215228418

I've always thought his agility for his size was probably the most intriguing thing about him.

How does he compare to Keven Veilleux, once considered a 1st round pick, before he was drafted 51st by Pittsburgh in '07.

6f4 +, play in Q , offensive players ...

Gauthier have better stats at the same age :

Veilleux
2006-07 Victoriaville Tigres QMJHL 70 20 35 55

Gauthier
2012-13 Rimouski Oceanic QMJHL 43 16 35 51

Worth noting that Veilleux was in his second season in the QMJHL during his draft year, while Gauthier is a rookie.
Also worth noting that after being drafted, Veilleux was ravaged by injuries that really sidelined his whole career.

With that said, I was never a huge fan of Veilleux. I didn't think he showed a consistent level of effort on the ice and I think that reflected in his conditioning, which then reflected in his injuries and his skating.

I don't see similar concerns with Gauthier.

And while Veilleux was an impressive offensive player the games he was on, he never had Gauthier's hockey sense and two-way game...

Maybe lazy but is he comparable to Hanzal/Handzus? Big, huge guys that can make plays, might not be the most physical but use their body effectively?

How's his defensive value, backchecking, IQ, etc?

I don't really like making player comparisons (I don't watch Hanzal or Handzus enough to make that call). I can see why people might reference Couturier though.

Gauthier is a two way player and a smart one at that. I actually think he sacrifices a bit in offensive efficiency to be more responsible in his own end. The advantage there is I think he's very projectable, he could fill many different roles in a lineup.

Has Gauthier's play fallen off? Because earlier in the season he was way over point a game average. Now, he has 19 goals and 54 points in 49 games.

Not really. He has pretty much been around that 1.1-1.2 point per game range all season.

17year old 6"5 rookie who is over a ppg. He's fine.

Where will he go in draft...20-25th? 19 goals offense not there for top 10-15. Future Martin Hanzal type?

Anywhere after the top 8. Could crack the top10, imo.

No, he won't go top 10. 19 goals not much offense to go that high. I see Montreal taking him if they draft 20th or later, but if they draft top 15 I see them going more offense. Somebody like Wennberg or Zykov.

In which case, they'd take the lesser player, so it's probably not the way to go.

Besides, you compared Frédérik Gauthier to Benoit Pouliot yesterday....

Pouliot is good comparsion. Offense isn't there. Gauthier more successful than him probably as superior defense. I knew Pouliot wouldn't score like scouts were saying. Same as '08 knew Deschamps wasn't going to be what everybody was predicting.

Neither will be offensive player in NHL despite their high draft ranking. Just a little leg work. If you want to see how a player offense translates to NHL, compare them to previous similar players in recent drafts. I've done this for years, there are exceptions to the rule, but it is pretty accurate. Injuries, size, speed, what team drafts a player play a role. But averaged out gives good idea how much they will score.

I give the draft a few years to judge previous players a little, they need a few years to develop.

2013 - Gauthier - Likely drafted in first round from Q, Has 54 points in 49 games. PPG 1.10
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2009 - Jordan Caron - top draftee in Q, 25th overall. Had 67 in 56 games. PPG 1.19
2008 - No Q forward drafted in first round.
2007 - Jakub Voracek - 8th overall from Q, 86 points in 59 games. PPG 1.46
- Logan MacMillan - 19 overall from Q, 55 points in 68 games, PPG .81
- Angelo Esposito - 20th overall from Q, 79 points in 60 games, PPG 1.32
2006 - Derrick Brassard - 6th from the Q, 116 PTS in 58 games. PPG 2.0
- James Sheppard - 9th from the Q, 84 PTS in 66 games. PPG 1.27
- Claude Giroux - 22nd from the Q, 103 pts in 69 games. PPG 1.49
2005 - Sidney Crosby - 1st pick from Q, 168 PTS in 62 games. PPG 2.70
- Marek Zagrapan - 13th from the Q, 82 PTS in 59 games. PPG 1.39
- Alex Bourret - 16th from the Q, 86 PTS, in 65 games. PPG 1.32
2004 - Alex Picard - 8th from the Q, 80 PTS IN 69 games. PPG 1.16
2003 - Steve Bernier - 16th from the Q, 101 PTS in 71 games. PPG 1.42
- Marc-Antoine Pouliot - 22ND, 73 PTS in 65 games. PPG 1.12
2002 - Pierre-Marc Bouchard - 8th, 140 PTS in 69 games. PPG 2.02
2001 - Ales Hemsky - 13th from the Q, 100 PTS in 68 games. PPG 1.47
2000 - No forwards chosen from Q in first round.

That's 15 QMJHL forwards chosen in first round over last 10 drafts. Quite a wide database. The best was Crosby at 2.7 PPG. Next was Bouchard and Brassard. Neither lived up to accolades, partly due to injuries. Hemsky and Giroux were around 1.5 PPG in their draft year. And, have gone on to relative careers to their draft numbers. Numbers say Voracek should score better. But forwards around 1.1 PPG, gone on to be bottom 6 forwards, or fringe NHLers. Pouliot, Caron, Picard.

With his size and good defensive skills Gauthier will go on to good career. But as 3rd line two-way center with great size, 40-45 pts in NHL on average year. If he never had great size and defense Gauthier would be non-draft to me.

Switch Pouliot to Bergeron, and you start to make sense.
