Of course it is. I mean, just think of the chaos on every line change with 35 players on the bench.

I think Gaudette will work his ass off this off season and come to camp bigger and ready to take an NHL spot. I also think he is pissed that people only see him as a 3rd line centre and that  he excel like Boeser has. I see him surprising a lot of people and earning a top 6 centre spot on the team.

I really hope you are right, as it could make for a very interesting camp and preseason. It could also answer a lot of question marks about the depth at center ice.

if he could turn into a legit 2C, that would be a dream come true, filling an immediate hole

 

but in the long term, compared with contending teams, isn't Horvat more of a 2C and Petterson potentially a 1C? if so AG could then easily slot in at 3C and still be very useful..

I am not sure what you are referring to. I have seen no indication that Gaudette is pissed about pegged as a 3C. For one thing, I don't think he is being pegged as a 3C. But if he turned out to be 3C on a good NHL team (as we hope Vancouver will soon be), I think he would be delighted.

 

He might be unhappy that the three UFA signings have reduced his probably of making the team out of camp from close to 100% to something below 50%, but that is different. Whatever happens I think he will adopt a good attitude and work hard. And I am sure he realizes that playing a lead role on what should be a good Utica team is not a bad outcome for next year, at least to start.

Any good team would like Horvat at 2C. Obviously a good team would like a bit more scoring at the 1C position. Pettersson had a great year last year and looks very good, but there is no guarantee he becomes 1C next year or ever in the NHL. Maybe it will turn out that he is better on the wing. Given his relatively slight build I think playing C in NHL might be a challenge for him. But the Canucks would certainly like him to be able to take the 1C role.

 

I look at it this way. If Horvat is your 1C, then you probably thin at the center position. But if Horvat is your 2C, then your center position is looking very good, as you have a world-class 2C and, presumably, a guy even better at 1C.

 

Gaudette will be in the mix for 2C, 3C or 4C by this time next year, maybe even this year. He could be at 2C coming out of camp (although I think that is unlikely).

Because people get hung up on who is the 1C, 2C, 3C etc lets dispense with the labels.  Locks for centre this coming season appear to be Horvat, Sutter and Beagle.  Who will be the "other" centre?  

 

Pettersson - most think he will be initiated on the wing

Gaudette

Gagner - Green didn't seem thrilled with him in the middle (I have been penciling him in on my posts but only by default.  I can't decide)

Granlund - same

Schaller

Gaunce - Green has said that he thinks Gaunce will make a better LW in the NHL

 

Given that the addition of Beagle is about taking defensive match ups, the "other centre" could almost be any of the above.  The one thing that I am sure of is that Pettersson and Gaudette are projecting as future centres for the Canucks while the others do not.

Recent quotes from Benning and Green have them apparently leaning to trying Pettersson at C and partnered with Baer. Third guy TBD.

I'd be interested in reading/hearing that for myself - any clue when/where you heard them say that?

Botchford has an article up in the Province with quotes by Green.  Sounds like Pettersson is going to get the opportunity to be C2.  Goldobin/Leipsic will battle for LW1 and Baertschi is likely playing with Pettersson.  See extract below.

Fwiw Brough got a similar lineup after discussing with Benning.

Hey thanks!

I saw that Brough article but I'm too cheap to pay for my sports news ... so I guess I gotta read Botchford...

Something like Eriksson, Gaudette, Petterson as a sheltered '3rd' line...why not?

I like it.  Though I suspect that once he adapts to the NA game that by the end of the season that Pettersson won't need any sheltering.  But to start, I like it.
