Shouldnt that tell us something?
Nobody has signed him yet isn't really a valid excuse. Brunner, Cleary, Morrow, even the RFAs, are they all red flags?

Gilbert was only bought out because Minny couldn't buyout Heatley and were in a bind.

Gilbert and center Kyle Brodziak, who also had a rough season, each were hit with a type of pneumonia. While neither used the sickness as an excuse, both players lost a lot of weight and Gilbert himself was actually hospitalized.
both per Mike Russo. I think that factored into his horrible season.
