I haven't gotten around to Gare's bio yet, but it should be done in the next couple days, and hopefully I can verify he is capable of filling that role with some help from Ovechkin.
I'll hold off on judgments until reading more about Gare then. I think maybe you could have used a more balanced offensive player on the RW of Ovechkin and Taylor but RWs with glue guy attributes who are good passers aren't exactly in high supply.
