Brian Boyle is 53.8% right now.

Both hit, PK and provide great size down the middle.

Gaustad is a little more skilled I would say but I wouldn't say they are that different.
Paul Gaustad for a 1st (actual trade was Gaustad & a 4th for a 1st) was a historical overpayment. Using this as a baseline for any player's worth is a fool's errand.

Regardless, while there is historical compatibles for trades, the trade market is 100% independent from past trade deadlines each year based on the market. Either way, a 2nd for Boyle is the most realistic scenario, anything more is unrealistic/greedy.
