Just kidding. Maybe.
You are. Trust me. My own infatuation with Malhotra going back to 1996 or 1997 aside, there's simply not a comparison between the two in any sense.

Not that this is a bad thing per se. A high speed forechecker is a nice thing to have.
I'd say this is a bit closer. Gillies is like a bizarre clone of Chimera and Raffi Torres, with a ceiling somewhere beneath both of them. In a career year, he'd be looking at something like 15 goals and 20 assists

I wouldn't get too attached to him though.
