Gaustad Gone to Nashville.

SPORTSNET’S Nick Kypreos reports the Buffalo Sabres have traded center Paul Gaustad to the Nashville Predators. Details to follow…

**UPDATE** The Predators gave up a first round pick for Gaustad, but they also get a fourth round pick from the Sabres.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: Yes, the Predators overpaid for Gaustad, a pending UFA this summer, but they’re obviously going for it this season and aren’t concerned about giving up a first round pick. Gaustad will provide solid grit and penalty killing at center for the upcoming playoffs, and if he performs well, perhaps they might consider re-signing him.

    Good for Nashville,

    Gaustad gives them size and toughness up the middle. Could be helpful if they face the Bruins in the finals!

    great pickup for smashville. however, i seriously doubt they will re-sign him. he’ll be back in blue and gold july 1

    I def think that both Gaustad and AK-46 get contract extensions, Smashvillle doesn’t seem to be in the market for rentals. I like this pick up a lot, even if the cost was high.
