There's really no way to justify $3M for a 4th liner, regardless of the team, payroll, player, skillset, etc... $3M is just too much.
I like Gaustad and all, but giving up a 1st rounder and paying him that much for a 4th line role (when he's healthy) is really absurd. Skate a journeyman or a kid there for $1-1.5M and be happy. That $1.5-2M difference could be the difference in signing a top-6 forward at $7M or missing out on him at $5M.
As the above poster pointed out, take SK's $3M, and the difference of Gaustad's $3M to a more reasonable $1M 4th line salary and there's $5M already towards a decent FA pickup.
