Gervais can ride the pine and fill in as needed. Gus can take top four minutes from time to time when people get hurt and it wouldn't be a terrible situation. Essentially, I think Gus tops out in a best case scenario as an average #4 defender. I think in reality he would be a solid bottom pairing guy who can fill in from time to time on the second pair. If you see anything more than that in him I think you are dreaming.
I agree. I doubt anyone on here think he's got 1st pair potential or anything other then a solid #4 max
