Here's one more piece:

Really, when you look at this objectively, Gusarov should be seen as a lesser version of Watson. Watson was also boring and safe and useless offensively. Watson was a bit more physical, and definitely better in the dressing room. Watson also enjoyed more team success and was a bigger part of that success.
