I agree with pretty much everything you're saying but Gus was an AHL All-Star and put up numbers that would get him the call in most organizations. I'm a firm believer that he just needs steady minutes and a competent d partner to be a decent bottom pairing guy and as a free agent signing out of college that's not bad.

In coming into this season he had 73 pts in 105 AHL games
