Welcome Gauncer [Gone-tcher] (dubbing the nickname now).

Can't wait for the trade rumours to start.

I am so pumped about this pick, a big Canadian boy, that can score, and plays physical. Thank you MG for making this pick.

Suddenly I'm not missing a former 10th overall draft pick as much....

Just took a peek at a few sites with their mock drafts, looks like we got a great value pick, Gaunce was ranked as high as 12, and 20th being the lowest. Can't wait to see the kid in action, from i've read, his skating sucks, a real lunch bucket guy that wins faceoffs, great defensively, and apparently his wrist shot is a sight to behold. Has a lot of intangibles suggests he might be captain material as well

I guess the number thing was a big deal to Hodgson so they took care of business right off the bat this time.

Silly. Smyl shouldn't have to be asked until Gaunce made the team.

Hmmm.... no pictures of him wearing #12?

Wow, I hoped we would get Gaunce, but thought he would be long gone by the time we picked. International Scouting Service had

him ranked at No. 7 and the Hockey News at No. 17

wooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!

I can't believe he was still available at 26th. Absoluetely thrilled Canucks picked him.

Was hoping Lou would've been traded traded by now.

Why is anybody talking about the number thing?

They're all #12, the Canucks just used this as an opportunity to honour the Steamer, nothing more.

Unreal pick, was pissed we were going to miss on him because of the Pres. Trophy.

Perfect selection and BPA.

Samuelsson is rated as having a high hockey IQ but labours and is very sluggish on the ice

Thanks but I'll pass

Also, did all the teams' jerseys have and apostrophe before the #12 or was it something that we did to differentiate from Smyl's #12?

The guy reminds me a lot of a Cody Hodgson without the ego. Both were touted for their balanced skillset and below average skating. Hodgson is obviously more skilled (leading to the ego issues), but Gaunce looks like a perfect third line centre in the future, with no complaints because he's supposed to be a character kind of guy anyways.

Loving all the kids who are upset because they think Gaunce will wear number 12 when he's a Canuck haha
