I'm not sure Dan-o. But I can say that Aucoin reminds me of a pre-Yashin Jason Blake. Small but tenacious with good speed, although Blake is faster. I'm not saying that Aucoin will wind up having the offensive numbers that Blake went on to have, but Blake played much of his career without missing significant time due to injury. Let's hope it's the same for Aucoin.
And by permanently replace Reasoner, I mean for the rest of this season. It would be great to see Cizikas take over the 3rd line center role and have Aucoin on the 4th. At that point, the Isles can trade, waive or just sit Reasoner. He's UFA at the end of the season anyway. But the Isles should definitely be looking to upgrade on Aucoin for next season.
