Nashville GM David Poile still thinks highly of Paul Gaustad.
"Paul does what he does. He's a checking center, best in the league at faceoffs and penalty killing," said Poile. "To me this is the good and bad news. Paul Gaustad is way more effective when our team has a lead, way more effective on our team as a shutdown guy. Give us the leads in the third period and the leads out of the gate and I think his role is better." Gaustad still has two years left on his current deal, which carries a $3.25 million cap hit. He contributed 10 goals and 11 assists in 75 games last season. Jun 19 - 1:35 PM
