Via Matthew Barry: Lombardi on Gauthier

Love him or hate him, Denis Gauthier was certainly a decent "filler". "I told this to him twice", Lombardi began. "I’ve just to keep my options open in terms of whether one of the kids is ready and what would fit with this group. The one kid who had moved along a little quicker was Drewiskie. This kid is so focused. He’s a coaches dream. We’ll know more about where he’s at in mid July and we still might have a box open, so to speak, and then it becomes an issue of "do we fill it" or do we et a guy that is maybe more of a puck mover, because Drewiskie would trend more towards the steady".
