Also gaudette just isn’t very good . Player who Is consistently buried on the ice . Both pieces in this trade are pretty fringe nhlers. 

His points last season suggest he is a whole lot better than the no namer we took off the Hawks hands

 

gauds was snake bitten on many attempts this year

Anyways now that he is gone the player I had mentioned who was in a liquor store while

supposed to be quarantined was gaudette and his wife . Seems they acted like the rules didn’t apply to them. Word is also coming out that lots of players were very resentful Towards him .

I said when that video was leaked that he might have played his last game in Van if he was ground zero.  If they flaunted the rules, how could he ever look Harmonic in the eye again?  Also, if true, this is a "we've got your back" to a guy like Hamonic, who I'm sure they're good to sign again.

Oh look, Sekeres will make crap up for free now. So happy he doesn't have a job on the radio anymore. 

 

Is he wrong if he told himself that information?

No name undrafted guy coming back has a whole 3  points this season meaning Dim Jim will sign him to 3 x 3 like Pearson 

 

chicago must be laughing in their trade war room 

 

Stats bubble playoffs 2019-2020

 

Highmore  9 games  3 goals 1 assist  4 points  -1

 

Gaudette  10 games 0 goals 0 assists  0 points  -1

 

Gaudette downfall began in last year's playoffs.

Was wondering what Gaud's future with the Nucks was a couple of days ago, especially with the team having a lot of confidence in Lind at the center spot.

I dont think your theory is crazy. At all. 

If, Guad and/or his wife were dismissive of their covid restrictions then I would ship him out too. I mean, the whole team is sick and she is on video mocking and refusing the idea of not being allowed to grocery shop. 

Not a wild idea at all to think there could be truth to it, in time the truth will likely come out. When I heard that it was Gaud that was traded and looking at the return we got, the covid angle popped in my head right away.

He was. His release is terrible though. Way to slow and predictable. If he improves that then he will score more imho.

Yeah but thats not my point, its that deliberately provoking the fanbase is not a smart idea. Yes he answers directly to ownership, but that doesn't mean ownership is immune to the whims of the fanbase if they think it will affect their bottom line.

That's true.  Mind you, the trolling of the fanbase idea was just my speculation.  I'm sure Benning runs a tighter ship than basing his actions on the triggering of a fanbase's emotional response.  :P

I was a big Gaudette fan when he was in College, thought he would have good potential.  He had a great motor and enough of a scoring touch to put him in the upper echelon of his peers in College.  I always thought that his line mate Dylan Sikura (who wen to Chicago in the 6th round) had a higher ceiling. In the games I watched it was Sikura who stirred the drink on that line.  Who knows, maybe Chicago has plans to re-unite the two at some point.  (Im assuming Sikura is still in Chicago's system)

 

Now for some reality.  Gaudette is roughly  one year younger than Bo Horvat.   I think we have seen everything we need to see to come to a pretty safe conclusion that what you have seen is what you get.  Soft on the puck and the boards, average defensively, has a decent shot but as a package probably wont be a top 6 player and isnt specialized in anything enough to be a bottom 6 player.  Who knows I could be wrong but I dont see much more upside from Gaudette.

 

It was a nice story while it lasted.  Hobey Baker winner drafted in the 5th round, look like a scoring machine in Northeastern during their cup run.  

 

 

My concern is that he may not have been deployed properly by Greene and Co. I remember watching his scoring hi lights in college on youtube and thinking he reminded me of OV with that shot from the top of the circle.

NHL coaches are always trying to turn scorers into checkers. Gauds bought in really well IMO, and was never really rewarded with offensive line mates or ice time. I'll be watching and curious to see how Chicago uses him. Maybe he gels with Dach... they kind of remind me of each other. We all saw glimpses of it. The kid likes to score goals. Shackled with Rooster and Sutter was never going to allow him to do what he is good at. Sniping.

This one could come back to bite us.

I agree there may be a possibility that he goes to the Hawks and puts up some goals.

 

As far as his utilization here I don’t think he could have been moved up the lineup as a centre.   
 

could he be an effective scoring winger? I’m curious to see how Chicago deploys him.
