Bingo. Gaustad is good at what he does. He provides size, defense, leadership, and face off prowess. We have the cash and space. We are way under what we were said to be spending this year ... What is the problem?!?

The problem on this team isn't Paul gaustad. It is a weakened transition game, power play that is struggling to regain its number 1 identity (or any identity), and the age old lack of true scoring forward. When the first two are off, we are going to struggle as a team.
