But your case grows with every complaint and subsequent invisible showing from GerbeGone.
Consider that if a team that has lost 11 1-goal games gets more than three goals out of that roster spot (or Stafford's 4), we're not talking tank but 8-9 seeding.

Gerbe still looks like a collegiate scorer trying to do what he did as a collegiate scorer. When he's been more effective at this level, he was working as a checking player who could use his speed/tenacity to eliminate his man. His play has been very "me first" to me and match his comments. His possession numbers are indicative of someone who isn't playing simple, basic, sound hockey with or without the puck.
