I've been pushing hard for Gaustad for the last month or so. He is great at faceoffs, plays the PK, and would be an upgrade over Boyle on the 3rd line.
I think the addition of him and Smyth (or Selanne, if made available) could really push this team over the top without breaking the bank. Two players that would fit nicely into this system and address major areas of need.
They need someone who can provide secondary scoring snd help out the PP (Smyth) and bottom 6 depth that can take PK minutes away from the top players as well as win that key defensive zone faceoff (Which I'm telling you now could kill this team in the playoffs if it's not addressed), in Gaustad.
If Feds is healthy, run lines of:
Anisimov - Stepan - Gaborik
Smyth - Richards - Callahan
Dubinsky - Gaustad - Hagelin
Feds/Rupp - Boyle - Prust
