June 2013- Gaunce is very sound defensively and that will be what earns him a spot in Big D, possibly as early as this coming season. Dallas can definitely use a defenseman who isn't a liability in his own end, something that has plagued the Stars in recent seasons. Gaunce will never be an offensive force, but he makes good decisions with the puck in the defensive zone, and he will earn loads of ice time due to his defensive play. Gaunce will put up enough hits, blocks, and PIM to be worth rostering in deeper multi-category leagues. Rex Doty
April 2013 – With the recent additions the Dallas Stars have made of prospect defenders, the future blue line has become a pretty imposing weapon. Gaunce will add size and nastiness back there along with shutdown abilities. As a more polished and ready prospect, it is safe to assume that he is on the cusp of securing a full time NHL job and with Dallas’ lack of meanness in front of Kari Lehtonen, Gaunce could be a very valuable piece to the team and to owners looking for hits, blocked shots and penalty minutes.

March 2013 - As expected, Gaunce is being weened as a stay-at-home, agitating rearguard. He holds plenty of upside in an Hits/PIM capacity, but will never post a 20-point NHL season. - Dobber
March 2012 – Gaunce does not possess the high end scoring or play making ability from the blue line. He does, although, have a polished game at both ends of the ice with a great physical style, grit, and a hard shot to go along. Gaunce is currently in his second season with Lake Erie (AHL) after spending three years in juniors in the OHL with Mississauga. He hopes his smart decisions and puck moving skills will get him to Colorado full-time. - Russ Bitely
Gaunce has a solid all-around game that will get him as a second or third defenseman pairing in the NHL.
