Sorry, but Gaustad is really only useful for faceoffs.
He does have size but doesn't use it that effectively and there really isn't that much snarl in his game.
Plus, he has a history of shoulder injuries and after they flare up, he becomes almost useless.
He's probably looking for a bump in salary too (last deal was 4 yrs/$2.3m), which makes things worse.

McClement > Gaustad.
