I love Gaustad on our team, but we may need that 3.25.
A difference of $1.25M is not going to be the thing that stops us from getting our star forward. There will be a long list of excuses as to why we failed to get a star forward this summer, but being shy a million bucks won't be one of them.

To be honest, I'd rather have Gaustad at $3M than Kostitsyn at $3M. If we're trying to upgrade our top 6, wouldn't it make sense to clear someone out of it? We need to look at changing the makeup of our top 6. The bottom 6 is fine, ideal actually.
