Gauthier played on Aube-Kubel's team, so they've seen him plenty of times. Hextall did seem to shift and touch his face when asked about Gauthier -- some would say it was a poker tell, although probably just a coincidence.
Devils (back to back)
Penguins (back to back)
Carolina (back to back)
With that schedule, and hearing they've won something like 12 of the last 36, I can't possibly see them going more than about 5 wins and 9 losses. I'd be shocked if they did actually go .500% looking at that, but if they do it'll be, because they beat up on those teams that don't care at all and who are authorized to basically "tank".
Much like Ron Hextall, I will not mortgage my future posts on rental posts.
