IMO this year will really expose whether Buff has true power forward star potential or not. If he can approach 20 goals again I would be more than prepared to reassess my opinion of his potential.

Either way, Gilbert is showing that he is a complete tool defenceman, and he is locked up. Its well known that top defencemen are more valueable than top forwards (other than elite) because they are harder to come by.
