His cap hit and salary are both low enough to be nearly non-existent, and he's able to add not just versatility, but actual skill in several facets. He's not simply "defensively aware", he's good defensively. He's not "adequate" offensively, he's actually good as both a shooter and a playmaker. He'd be on any team's second PP or PK unit, first on some teams'.

And if there are 20+ teams that are looking at buying this year at the deadline, I'd expect someone to offer a 1st to get him.
People really need to stop citing the Gaustad trade as having any sort of bearing on player value at the deadline.

Nashville was out of their minds, and they know it.
