Gilbert infuriarates me, when the Oilers play on tv he just seems to be there.. ya know? Not really productive but more like just treading water.

My opinion of him off of NHL 09 and 10? He seems to be as gifted as Hemsky and I even experimented with using him at forward - it was like having two Hemsky's in 09 lol..but..in 10 he either plays solid and is the best defenseman or he accumulates 12 mins + in penalties with a few horrendous give aways.

I love the title of this thread. I actually think that exact same thing at least 10 times each game I watch.

Did you really just give an opinion of a hockey player based on a video game? Really?

I thought playing the video game was just like playing it in real life.

The amount of times he ends up facing our own goalie ... I could punch something.

Is it really that surprising? I've been around this board for a long time, and it seems to me that a lot of posters' knowledge of the game or hockey, or certain players comes from NHL10 and/or fantasy hockey.

Well in this case, Gilbert is doing me a favor by sucking. Tank for Taylor Hall!

I remember how Brad Isbister got 50 in 41 as my first line center in NHL Breakaway 99.

Rob Schremp was my #1 center in NHL 08. I had 92 goals and 100+ assists with him one season. He was a +200.

I had also traded for Brule, O'Sullivan, and Fleischmann (Before the Oilers traded for them). I always knew I could do a better job than Lowe

Not really, because prior to that I said everytime I watch him on tv he seems to just be there, not doing anything productive - granted I do not see every game. Maybe I miss games where he's awesome but judging by this thread, probably not
