So do you feel similarly about Gaudette? Gaudette and Donato both had solid college careers, Gaudette won the Hobey while Donato was a finalist. Donato actually had 9 points in 12 games coming straight out of college (Boeser had 5 points in 9 games as a comparison and Gaudette had 0 points in 5). Now obviously Donato's numbers aren't as good this year with 9 points in 34 games, but Gaudette has 9 points in 35 games this year and many seem to see Gaudette with a lot more potential left (both are the same age). Donato has 12 points in 18 games in the AHL and Gaudette has 11 in 14. Both guys are similar builds and are centers. It was brought up that Donato led the US in the Olympics and Gaudette doesn't have that on his resume whereas he was only considered for the team. So with all that said, would you have traded Gaudette and a 5th for Coyle? Solid post. Yes I would make that deal, Coyle is a solid player Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
