Gaustads contract should be going to Josi after his ELC expires and get him signed long term.

Not saying he have to waive him right now, just saying if I am a rival GM, I would never trade for Goose at his current contract value with the cap going down. Now someone may get desperate, but if Poile called me up and asked if I wanted him, I would probably laugh and hang up. If he has a very poor year, his value can only decrease from there.
A team lacking depth due to injuries that has tons of cap space (I'm looking at you Colorado) would be willing to give a pick or something. Downie is out, Landeskog is out, and ROR is holding out. They need someone on the PK to replace ROR anyways
