With that type of offensive potential...yes. Liles can't match his size, but is on a 40 point pace in a bad season for himself and the club. He's also locked up for three more years. They also have Shattenkirk coming up in the next few years.

My point, which I should have stated more clearly, is that my preference would be for a more defensive minded physical defenseman.

I'm not knocking Gilbert, I love the kid, it's just that I would prefer adding a different type of defenseman.
