in his 2nd year in the nhl, Gilbert was tied for 6th in defenseman Even strength scoring. The only thing stopping him from being in the top 10 for defenceman scoring is that Souray and Visnovsky are pp specialists and get all the pp time.

Gilbert is the real deal and he is still in the early stages of his learning curve. A trade to a team where he is on the first pp unit could see him become a star in this league.

As a comparison , here is the 4-9 top even strength scorers amongst forwards - Crosby, Parise, Datsyuk,Sedin, Iginla, Savard. Gilbert was tied for 6th amongst dmen.
