Here's the thing with Gaudette. If he isn't here at seasons end like a Brock was he's going back to college to become a UFA. We can't lose this guy, his numbers are Pettersen insane. He's gone on record as saying he wants to be a Canuck next season but this is the danger of
drafting college kids. Northeastern is ranked 10th so we have that on our side. It's still 50/50 on what he does

Agree with most of your write except I don’t think for any reason within the next 2 season will anyone take LE.
I am thinking that even with his contract, if then next expansion draft rules are the same as the last, he will still be the best player exposed by us. Probably by far. We will be looking to pick up a couple scrubs to meet the minimum exposure requirements.

I dot think they’ll have to pick up any scrubs.

Yes!!!! It's nerve racking isn't it.
Gaudette & Petersson made a mockery of that summer young gun thing. Gaudette gave Elias a little love tap at the end. :lol:
Adam is seeing Brock and Troy playing with more young talent on the way and I'm hoping he'll want to be a part of it.

I'm with you on that Mick. We have to hope that the young guys can see the future and aren't too worried about, for example, the last 5 weeks.

Speaking of moving forward, as far as Benning's renewal goes, why would you not give the guy a couple years to let the team he has been building actually play? The guy has managed to collect some great players and prospects and there will be a few more coming in over the next six months. What would be your rationale to not renew his contract?

What expansion draft?

Seattle isn't anywhere near close. They hope to have Key Arena renovated by 2020, which means the earliest Seattle could be viable would be the 2020/21 season. Although that lines up well with Loui's contract as that's when his modified NTC kicks in. Right now he has a NMC so he isn't going anywhere until 2020 for sure.

Like a lot of college FA, he no doubt is looking for an opportunity on the big squad. They're entering the organization in their early twenties, not their late teens so I don't see them going somewhere they will have to toil in the minors for a couple of years before they get a sniff. Hopefully Stetcher and Boeser get a chance to reach out to him if he's on the fence. I think what happens at the TDD may alter his appreciation of his chances of getting on the big squad. Unless the team turns it around and gets close to the playoffs, I can see Gaudette following in Boeser's footsteps and playing some games in the garbage time of the season this Spring. Give him a taste, give him some things to work on over the summer and se what he does next Fall.

Dunno if a future expansion draft is going to look like the last one. I think the only people liking it these days are in Vegas and the league offices. I can't imagine Western Conference organizations being too crazy about the squad McPhee was able to assemble. Everybody seemed on board with a draft process that made Vegas more competitive than previous expansion teams, but no doubt many are reconsidering. We'll see if league expansion throws management a bone.

Do not under estimate what this guy can bring. And, even next year.

This is just another reason I think we are ready to cut some ties at the end of this year.
Word of caution on Adam Gaudette. In his last interview he stated he weighed 182 lb and has problems putting on weight. For those of you who will say it's OK because of Juolevi being 182 when drafted and Pettersen at 165 at the 2017 draft just remember they were 18 years old at the time and Gaudette was 21 years old being interviewed last fall. Juolevi has since built up to 198 lb. If Gaudette is to play a scrappy, poor man Ryan Kesler type game then take a look at Cole Cassels, who had a very good career in junior but has struggled with his game and injuries as a pro. Cassels weighs 184 lb and will be 23 years old in May.

Cassels can’t skate though. I think size is the least of his problems

You look at a player like Mike Peca, he was roughly two inches shorter and a couple pounds lighter (source Hockey DB) and look at the type of game he played. If the kid is fast enough and skilled enough (takes more than size to play physical IMO) he can play his style of game without having to be 200 lbs.
