Gabby's defense is solid. He makes some good plays in his own zone, but I don't think it's changed much from what it was when he first signed with us. Keep in mind Gabby was coached by Jacques Lemaire for much of his career, so he was taught and required to play defense right from the get-go.

He's definitely not a blueline floater.

Not sure what you mean by "benefits from his skill." If you mean playing more minutes just because of his talent, then not really. If he's having a bad game, Torts will cut his ice time. He hasn't really had many bad games this year, but last year he frequently got under 20 minutes (sometimes as little as 16 minutes) if he wasn't playing well.
