He's great at faceoffs and strong defensively. He's worth the price to have a guy that will consistently win big draws and can handle defensive responsibilities. He may be on the 4th line, but his situational value is is extremely high.
I like the NHL network guy, he basically said with Gaustad that the true contenders don't always need the huge trade, they're already a good club. Filling specific roles to plug holes in the roster is equally important when a team is tuning up for a playoff run.
