The two would be interchangeable. Aside from a slight size difference and different handedness, I don't think anyone would be able to tell the difference between the two if their names were removed from the back of their jerseys. At this point, they are both bottom rung guys. Gust may (MAY) turn out to be a regular in the top 4. Gervais won't. I agree 100% on that. But right now the two are on the same level.
Gus is clearly better statistically in just about category, I don't know how you can say Gervais is better in some, worse in others like they're just about even.
