funny that you just said the Canucks couldn't attract talent because  Wonkie Willie 

but then you say Gauncer had plenty of opportunity... 77 of his games were played under The Wonk

 

then under the Green Monster he is passed over for players like Ganlund, Loui, Baertschi, Goldy, Gaudette (the shiney new thing) and Timmy ("relax") Schaller

I mean, you can make a pretty good argument all of them outplayed Gaunce in either scoring or physical play

Gaunce had worse offense than Beagle for the majority of his time, and that's really saying something. However, he showed improvement over time especially later on. That said, it was a big improvement on almost nothing, so it still wasn't very impressive. It is interesting that he had 4 points in his last 4 NHL games, but it's hard to say if that was puck luck or a sign of genuine improvement.

 

He has 9 points in 15 games with Vaxjo in the SHL, but I'm not sure that's really better than he ever was in the past, given the SHL is of a similar level to the AHL, and those are similar to his AHL numbers.

who are we specifically talking about? not sure I can think of a prospect that didn't make it here just based on our coaching alone, e.g. other than Tryamkin being annoyed by Wllie D.
