I'm not saying I would have paid it, because I wouldn't, and it was steep in my book, but it wasn't like Poile gave up a first for Gaustad alone. And to Poile's credit, he was able to re-sign Gaustad as well. So the deal doesn't look nearly as bad as it might have.

Just wanted to point this out.
3.25M . . . not a bad number.

That's the gamble . . . renting Guastad for a late 1st isn't worth it. Renting and then signing him probably is.
