One thing missing in the equation is that Gilbert ALWAYS logged the top minutes on his team anywhere he played and is a thoroughbred from the perspective of eating minutes.
One way to look at it is with Gilberts 24minutes you get 5 more minutes of not having to look at players like Sutton, Peckham, Potter, Barker, now Whitney. The 19mins Schultz is logging is pretty much what you get. His minutes have regularly been lower than Gilberts.
The 19 minutes we get from Schultz has been more solid and event free that the 24 minutes we got from Gilbert.
Gilbert gets more minutes now because Minny has squat all for defenceman now with Zanon, Zidlicky, Bruns and Schultz gone. Defence and goaltending used to be their hallmark. Now it is very obvious they are going into teardown and rebuild mode. They've been the worst team in the league since January.
I hear they have a big shopping mall like ours though, with a good selection of high quality stilletoes.
