I agree. Imagine wearing 96 in Van....

Meh. Bit of a loss on paper but Gaudette was an ill fit in the bottom 6 with an abysmal defensive game. Not a great return but once again a huge overreaction here for swapping of two marginal players.

 

:bored:

In a couple years this will all be forgotten

Stop worrying about gaudettes 2019-20 point total so much and maybe worry about the fact he’s been the most sheltered player in the nhl for a reason. Deep breaths kiddos

Sheltered sure but he has potential. The guy he was traded for we picked up two guys on waivers better than Highmore in Vesey and Boyd. Then we got tons of guys like Bailey, Gravoac and Michaelis whom are all probably higher on the depth chart than Highmore for a bottom 6 role. Just don’t understand why you’d move Gaudette for somebody older and more fringe when we have so many bodies already fighting for a 4th line spot. Should have been for a pick, younger prospect or not moved at all.

Gaudtte could've scored a few more this season, how may posts has he hit? He had a lot of offensive chances, more than Jake, that's for sure. Hopefully he doesn't bury those with CHI. 

This. 
 

Gaudette had a 45-point prorated season last year and has been super unlucky with his chance conversion this season, but still hasn’t lost his knack for being in the right place at the right time. I’m sure Chicago will tap into that. 
 

How people say Highmore’s worth Gaudette as of April 12, 2021 is bewildering.

No he wasn't a fit, but he can chip in here and there and still has potential. Something we did not get back in this trade. At the very least it should have been defensive depth coming back in return. Just awful.

I think this is a question worth considering: who has the higher floor Lind or Gaudette?  If you think Lind has more potential to become a serviceable NHL'r, seems prudent to use a protection spot on him

Between his non-existent defensive game and ED exposure... As much as it's a marginal loss in value... Yup still meh... Lol

It's definitely a long term trade: (1) for a guy who MIGHT develop into a Motte like player and (2) banking on Lind's potential and thus protecting him from ED
