Similar players.

I mean, if you get offered a 1st or 2nd rounder for Brian Boyle, you take that and run, no matter if it depletes your playoff depth by a hair.
Gaustad is one of the best faceoff guys in the league every year, and is a legitimate heavyweight. He's far nastier than Boyle. Besides, most would agree that Nashville over-payed on that deal.

If it comes down to it, a Boyle trade should only be done if it makes us better in the short term. A draft pick doesn't do that.
