Ott > Gaustad tho. The point there is that if Gaustad can, in some universe, fetch a 1st, Ott can easily do so. GMs pay dumb prices (ie: multiple 2nds) for slow bottom pairing rental defensemen at the deadline all the time. A chippy 3rd liner who can win draws, PK, and is seen as a leader (A in Dallas, A then C in Buffalo) is a guy a lot of GMs are going to inquire about. If the Leafs won't pay that price, well, their loss, because somebody will.
