I'd say he's a 4-5 guy. But on his best days, that was Schultz too. So hopefully they think they're getting a guy who can provide more in transition and add something in offensive zone. It's a bit of a lateral, change of scenery-type of deal but at the very least Gilbert isn't redundant with the rest of the Wild defensemen. He'll help the team get up and down a tad more which is what the Yeo wants.

Gilbert is prone to some gaffs, though, so we'll see what happens.
