  1. I agree that Gaunce needs new senery. I don't agree that he's slow. Correct me if I'm wrong but wasn't he one of the fastest skaters in the in the speed trials. He had great chemistry with Sutter, the two had lots of break aways. Personally I think he was misused and not used because of existing contracts. Wishing him the best.
  2. Eriksson is good on the forecheck. He's a big part of why the Bo line is as good as it is. He may not be scoring like a $6 million man but his passing is excellent and he calmly gets the puck out of his own end. He's got great hockey sense and his defense is great. I don't know about your statement that his possession stats being horrendous, time and time again I've seen him retrive the puck and get it back to the point for a shot. We may be stuck with LE cap hit but other than that he's a useful player.
  3. I'm starting to like Sautner and could see him in the mix next yr.
  4. Is Gaunce injured ? He hasn't been in the Utica lineup the last two games.
  5. That was my point. He hasn't been put in any offensive situations here. He's been used as a defensive specialist . As far as not putting up points in the AHL neither did Goldy. In 2016-2017 in the minors Goldy had 15 goals, 26 assists for 41 points in 46 games. Gaunce at Utica in 2015-2016 had 17 goals,21 assists for 38 points in 46 games. I don't think Gaunce will ever be a scoring phenom but there is some offensive upside there.
  6. As far as Gaunces lack of offensive stats he hasn't really been put in any offensive situations. If you give him the opportunity to play with Bo for 10 games like Goldy had he might surprise. This summer he needs to do like Kesler did when developing his shot, fire 100+ pucks a day.
  7. You're wrong when you say he's not fast, doesn't hit and doesn't block shots. He's one of our most developed prospects the only thing missing is his scoring touch but I believe that will come. I can see him replacing Sutter in a couple of yrs. I like Archibald and Motte too. Isn't it nice to have the problem of too much depth.
  8. I'd like to see Gaunce and Jake on a line together. Think we'd see lots of breakaways and 2 on 1's. Gaunce and Sutter also have good chemistry.
  9. Play Gaunce with Sutter. They have chemistry. Both great defensively and both create a ton of chances.
  10. I'd like to see Gaunce on a line with Sutter and Granlund. Great shut down line with some offensive upside. Pay attention next time Gaunce is in the lineup to how many times the play by play guy mentions his name. It may surprise some of you.
  11. Unfair to compare him to the Sedins. I'd say he's more like "no hands Hanson" .
