do you really think Gervais would've performed as well as Gus with 24+ minutes consistently (the end the season that's what Gus was getting) and just over 20 minutes average for the season? i sure don't
Gus only looked bad this year when paired with Gervais and i think it's because he's a complimentary player like Carle and can't carry his own pairing (though he still looked good the final two games of the season with Lilja).
I'm not sold on Gus. A lot of people around here seem to think that he will be a top 4 guy. I have not seen anything that would suggest that. His ceiling may be a top 4 defender, but that doesn't mean he will reach that. Gervais is a solid bottom pairing guy. He has no upside. He is what he is. Gus right now is in the same boat. Lauridsen is probably a rung below at this point, and his ceiling is that of a 5/6/7 player. But if we are going in to next season and need a final roster player, I would take Gervais as the seventh defenseman.
