Fair enough. I do agree he is a slight upgrade over Gilbert. I was more referring to his skillset more than the actual player. I was not clear in that regard. Although I was never terribly impressed with JM Liles when he was an Avalanche. Not a bad player by any means, just not someone I ever coveted. It sounds like his play has fallen off a bit in Toronto. Although as I never see his play first hand I can only go by hearsay.
