The best things that could happen to Gus would be a major injury to Timonen or Streit as weird as it sounds.

Just to make it clear, I don't want any of them injured but that's the only way Gus would get significant playing time and PP duties like he did last season when he was playing his best hockey.
It's really hard for him to shine when he only gets 10- 13 minutes of EV ice time and gets banned from the roster as soon as the team drops a game for no reason. His production and +/- are not bad at all and he is no liability out there but our Coaches seem to believe they will sneak into the playoffs this year and just don't want to take any risks playing him.
