How so? The fact is Tyutin fits the bill from an oiler standpoint and he would not be easy to aquire. Gilbert is a great d-man, but so is Tyutin and given each teams needs this deal seems like it might work.
If you look at the above posts neither teams fan's like this deal, which goes a long way to show that it is closer in value than you would think.
You do realize Gilbert is older than Tyutin, right? It would stand to reason that if both players continue to improve at a similar rate, Tyutin will always be better.
You do realize that Gilbert was in the NCAA for the last while and is only in his third year in the NHL don't you? It would stand to reason that if both players continue to improve at a similar rate, Gilbert will pass Tyutin very soon. Tyutin has been in the NHl since 2003...Gilbert since 2006(12 games).
Tyutin is slightly ahead of Gilbert in points this year, but Gilbert has 137 NHL games to Tyutins 293. That's a considerable difference. Gilbert will improve more and be better than Tyutin at offense.
