Another local guy...

Seriously, thoughts?

Hmm...in theory that gives us better puck movement and offense from the blueline. But I've never been impressed by Gilbert all that much.

Lateral move? Need for need? Change of scenery?

Wait and see IMO.

500k more per year, same length as Schultz(2 more years).

Can't say I'm thrilled but at the end of the day they're both #4/5 overpaid d-men.

Tom Gilbert:

Quote:
ASSETS: Is very mobile and a good skating defenseman. Moves the puck quickly and efficiently out of the defensive zone, and can also provide his team with offense. Good on the pinch, he knows his way around the offensive zone. Can log big minutes.

FLAWS: Has improved his compete level but still isn't physical enough for a 6-3, 206-pound blueliner, which limits his overall effectiveness in the defensive zone. Can also make mistakes inside his own end with the puck.

CAREER POTENTIAL: Mobile puck-moving defenseman.

Consensus on the Trade Forum is that we crushed this. Minnesota native, come on down...

I'm so sick of grabbing crappy Minnesotans.

Gilbert will fit in well. He sucks defensively just as much as the rest of the roster.

This will be looked back on as a huge mistake.

Everyone in trade forum saying we're winning this, I can't say that I know much about Gilbert to be honest. If he's a PMD, I love this move.

Couldn't be more thrilled to see Schultz gone.

Not the biggest fan of BNTG, but meh, the excitement of moving Schultz is too much to bear...

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!




Actually I'm ok with this move because it actually makes a lot of sense from the Wild's standpoint.


But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!

I'm wondering if NSF will change his username.

oh, snap...
just had a thought...

Is Bloomington Native Tom Gilbert friends with Zach?

Might not be such a head scratcher after all... Although... this probably pisses off Captain Koivu.
