Any highlight video can show the best of any player, doesn't mean that they do it consistently. I can find videos of Belanger scoring goals, that doesn't mean he's a good goal scorer.
Gilbert was good at some things, he was never a great passer consistently.
Gilbert is good at shielding the puck from defenders and skating the puck out of trouble and he makes smart decisions in the offensive zone but he's not a very good passer and certainly not at the stretch pass. If he was, the transition game would have been in much better shape.
The team usually got in trouble when Gilbert tried stretch passes or to chip it up the boards, he's better at making simple plays by shielding the puck and skating it out of the defensive zone.
