Not impressed with his 21 points in 23 games.

He was named to Canada's WJC evaluation group today. But he's pretty much considered a lock to make the team. They only invited 25 players so there's just a few cuts that need to be made.

mirtle: Brent Sutter says it was a no-brainer to have Leafs prospect Fred Gauthier on team.

Some nice words, but you could probably say that about all of the centres that made the team. It'll be interesting to see if he gets anything more than 4th line/PK time. Drouin, McDavid, Horvat, and Laughton are all probably ahead of him on the depth chart, with one of them moving to the wing.

Well it's better than having a center where the coach says "That guy, we have absolutely 0 use for a player like that, he sucks"

Meh, he's 18 and getting some praise.  Things could be worse.  Whether or not he ever pans out to be an NHL player remains to be seen.

If the substance of the praise is that Gauthier is the perfect choice to be the third or fourth line center on a team full of juniors I'm not sure which side of the divide that falls on.

I was agreeing with your sarcasm with sarcasm of my own  ;D

to be considered one of the top 4 or 5 centreman in Canada would be an endorsement no?

I mean, I'm not a WJC expert or anything but if they build the roster so as to best resemble a traditional hockey team's line-up(as opposed to just taking the most talented players and making a sort of all-star team) then it's not quite the same thing.

I mean, it's still a good thing if Sutter thinks Gauthier would be the best third line or defensive center available to Team Canada but, in regards to the discussion regarding chooing Gauthier I'm not sure which side of the divide that lends weight to.

Yeah I get what you're saying. We drafted a guy that may be at best a 3rd line checker. If he turns into Dave Bolland, so be it.
