Gilbert made some strides defensively this season but he was still painfully average on the defensive side of the puck and with that his offensive game disappeared.
Jacques Lemaire loved Nick Schultz and leaned heavily on him when he was coaching the Wild.
I view Gilbert as a top 4 guy and Schultz as a #5 guy at best. Now we have Schultz, Sutton, Potter, Peckham & Barker who are all best at playing on the bottom pairing.
