The one thing that gives me hope is he was heavily relied upon in Yeo's team which is the 9th best defensive team in the NHL.

I know they are universes better than us in the goaltending department, but if he can play tough minutes, then he was the shutdown guy we wanted from free agency.

We'll see how this goes, but this opens up a spot at the RH side of the D. If we can fill it with an upgrade on Gilbert, then I'm ok.

But if our play is to play Potter or Whitney on his off side, this makes very little sense.

We'll see. Still shocked we moved Gilbert. He found a new level of steady JUST this season. After all this development, we trade him?
