Love Gaudette’s confidence and competitiveness.


Last year at camp, he made a point of comparing himself to Elias Pettersson and then backing up his comments with a prospects game performance that matched Pettersson’s.


Today, he’s not the least bit shy throwing out Boeser’s name as a comparison and shouldering those lofty expectations.


I don’t necessarily believe Adam will become as high end a player as Pettersson or Boeser. But I love that he seems to really believe he can be. And I would not count him out. He definitely has the potential to be pretty special. I just hope we can all be patient and not get too caught up in hype.


But for today at least, Gaudette himself is driving the hype train and I’m buying a ticket for the ride. :) 

And the jersey too?

So happy this guy gets his moment now and won’t be overshadowed by Petterson, Dahlen, Dahlin (fingers crossed) right away. Our team is much fiestier now than it was pre-trade deadline with Leipsic, Archi, Motte, and Gaudette.


Adam is a part of our future core; always fun to see somebody like that finally get their career underway.

Lets remember where this kid started, really happy for him and his family. 

Getting drafted, when you are not a consensus first round pick, is unreal.   Sharing it with friends and family is one of the best feelings in the entire world.

Why is it a tough sell?   Canucks are respected organization and you have such a beautiful city/region to live in.   Further, the depth on the team is perfect for a young player wanting to actually get a taste of the NHL and have a shot a roster spot in a season or three versus getting buried on a depth chart.    

Good point.  Remember Drouin's "opportunity" in Tampa Bay?  Compared to Boeser's, e.g.?
