I'm one of the very few Oiler fans that like this deal. Gilbert's the kind of player that plays his worst when the games mean something. The opposite of a playoff type of player and also pretty soft although he's taken strides this year in that regard. Schultz is dependable and has great leadership abilities. Tencer reporting that his Wild teammates are upset to see him go and he captained Canada at the WJC way back when, not to mention wearing an A in Minny. Solid second pairing guy and the only thing that bothers me is the loss of another righty.
