I've never heard of him.Is he any good?

If the Blues picked him up,he must come cheap.

http://tsn.ca/nhl/teams/players/bio/...name=nhl-blues

Let's see: In 22 total NHL games, he has scored 1 goal, 1 assist, -10 rating, 2 PIMs, 12 shots on goal, and has a lot of energy.

Assets: Has tremendous creativity and offensive prowess. Has the hands of a natural goal-scorer. Can play any forward position.

Flaws: Needs to continue to work on his play without the puck. Must get physically stronger if he desires a regular spot in the NHL.

Career potential: Fourth line forward.

That's very true.... I think its make it or break it time for Gamache. He's done so well at the AHL level and his fuse is lit at both ends now.... If he doesn't succeed with your team, he may as well end up a career AHLer. He's a spitting image of Martin Erat (except his hair is longer). hehe

Oh wonderful, just what we need....ANOTHER 4th line forward! Nice move by the Blues. Let's pickup the career minor leaguer and screw up our possible pickup of an actual NHL level player! SUPER!

Typical of the moves made here in the last couple years.

And yes, I am starting to get really jaded with this team and management.

Gamache isn't a 4th line player. He is a scoring line player. The only way he makes it in the NHL is if he can stick on a scoring line. He looked pretty good against the Blues in the preseason. I remember him creating several scoring chances. I think he is worth a shot, but only if he is put on a top line.

At least Gamache has a history of being able to score - even if it was in the QMJHL. Of course, if his defense isn't up to snuff he'll be back to Peoria before the weekend is up.

He's a cherry picker. So if he's not on a line that will allow for that, he doesn't score.

Lots of speed, but he's a career minor leaguer.

In Gamache you may have get the "next martin st-louis" or another good player for your AHL team !!!! But I think it's a good move for Blues fans ....

This guy should just add more muscle and work harder and this will be a great pickup.

Now if those 2 things were easier to do

Gamache is small, but isn't fast - that is the knock on him. He does have good touch, but couldn't cut it in Nashville on 3rd/4th line duties. He needs to be top 2, and maybe with the right guys feeding him the puck and giving him rebounds to knock in he can suceed. Maybe he and a struggling Weight will gel?

Have you ever seen this guy play? He was probably one of the slower Milwaukee Admirals the year they won the Calder cup, and I definately wouldn't classify him as a cherry picker.

Gamache definitely has a ton of speed. That Milwaukee team flat out flew 2 years ago. I was sad to see him go from Nashville as he has a significant amount of potential but it just never seemed to emerge at the NHL level.

I remember seeing him play in Atlanta for the Thrashers a few times, but don't remember him at all (just the name).

Well, I should have said this...

I saw him with the Grrrowl and on that team, he had decent speed.

And he was DEFINATELY a cherry picker.

However, when I saw he play in Nashville, the guy was invisible.

I don't know if Gamache has the will to play and to win. Maybe it's his problem. Or maybe it's his size. Remember how Briere and St-Louis was described as not much interressing players because they were "too small" to play in this physical NHL.

I'm not saying that Gamache will be as good as Briere or St-Louis, but look at his junior stats. This guy must have some talent.

2 last seasons in the junior (QMJHL)
- Gamache : 327 points
- Brad Richards: 312 pts
- Crosby: 303 pts
- Briere : 293 pts

If you're a canadian and you're too small or not enough physicall, forget it. It's seems to me that only europeans are not getting problem with being small and not physicall.

as i said before...i don't think it's gamache's determination or heart...he's got that in spades. to be a good, small player...you have to be either fast OR a good skater. Gamache isn't slow, but he's NOT fast, and he's a pretty bad skater as well. In his time in Milwaukee, it seemed like he scored most of his goals from in between the circles, almost "garbage goal" type stuff, but he's not big enough to play that game in the NHL. Nicest kid in the world, and I hope he makes it...I just don't see it happening.

where's that power skating school when you need it. skating issues can be worked on, has he ever considered that as an option? while he's at it let him do some summer workouts with the same guy that trained jackman and macinnis a couple of years ago.
