"Bloomington Native Tom Gilbert" 13 years ago...

Wow, 13 years ago.. Crazy to think about. haha Anyway, I think I mentioned it when we traded for him but I went to High School with Tommy G. Well last night when I was watching the Wild game I decided to bust out my old year book from Junior year.. I had my phone next to me so I decided to share...

These are from my Jefferson Yearbook in 1999:

The good old standard yearbook photo:


The "What do you remember most about this last season" question:


And what trip down memory lane would be complete with out the old choir photo!?:




Mods, feel free to move this thread to somewhere else.. I was debating putting it on the Gilbert for Shultz thread but I figured it could be moved later..

I think he just needs time to fit in better. Besides the teams been more or less shell shocked ever since he arrived.

Yep, trade our best defenseman for Gilbert, then trade Gilbert for a bag of pucks. Makes sense.

Sorry, but until I see something impressive from Gilbert (which I have never seen in dozens of Wild/Oilers games, plus his recent games as a Wild) He will continue to be my scapegoat/whipping boy.

If you abandon the "what have you done for me lately" mentality, Schultz was this franchises most consistent, loyal, team-oriented defenseman. Sure, this was a bad year. But who wasn't having a bad year on the Wild?

The same could be said about Foster, Scandella, Falk or Prosser. Take your pick.

I didn't like the trade because of those reasons. But, I'm thinking Fletcher is sending a message to the team that complacency will not be tolerated .. and lets face it Schultz was getting mighty complacent. I blame Nick for this because he could have performed better in my opinion. I bet he plays better in Edmonton now that het got a big kick in the a**s.

Played well? He played great against Phoenix, and that's before you factor in that he played over 30 minutes.

Don't try to bring logic into this.

Boo Gilbert Boo!

Not a Gilbert fan and still not sold that it was a good trade but he's been our best D. First night he sucked but has gotten steadily better since. To be expected as he's new here.

My dad has an old parish directory with family photos that, if I could find it, I could post a pic of the Janaczak family, featuring Jim Craig's back-up Steve Janaczak of the Miracle on Ice generation.

And to think I always was under the impression Bloomington Jeff had incredibly hot chicks...



Cool photos though. Can't believe how wretched our haircuts were back then (yes, I was in HS at that time as well).

I honestly dont remember all that much... Sadly I don't remember all that much about high school in general, it's been too many years..

I do remember playing pick-up with him & a bunch of other guys a couple times at a park called Tarnhill in Bloomington but what I remember most is the ice being terrible there because they put the rinks over the parking lot so the ice got crappy quick. haha

I would be lying if I said I was good friends with him.. We knew each other & we got along but he wasnt in my grade & I really only ran into him occasionally & only skated with him a handful of times. I just remember him being a really nice kid & kind of shy in school.. I also kind of remember watching him play for our High School team but I wasnt focused on just his play or anything. I mean at that time he was just another kid on the team. I do remember once telling him "good goal!" & giving him a high five or a fist bump (whatever we did that was cool in the 90's haha) the day after a game back at school but thats about it..

One of my best friends was better friends with him so I remember hearing all about him getting drafted by the Avs. Oh and also, one of my best buddies that I moved to Cali with, his little brother & Gilbert's little brother went to the U of M together.. I remember when Tommy got his first contract with the Oilers, he bought his little bro a huge 50" flat screen for his dorm & the center ice package! (btw, back in 2005 or whatever a 50" flatscreen was a really awesome present. haha well it still is, but back then they cost twice as much!)

But sadly thats about all I remember.. I'm sure Im forgetting some times & I bet I played hockey with him more than I remember because we used to play pick-up all the time. I just only remember playing with him at Tarnhill Park for some reason... I'll call my one buddy that knew him better soon & see if I can get my memory jogged!

hahaha we had our share of good looking girls. It would just appear that none of them were Sophmores that year with last names that started with "G".

Gilbert is quality. He can play in all situations and log a lot of minutes. I know you guys will warm up to him, even if its not until next season.

Shultz has been decent for us so far, playing well defensively and also has 4 assists in 7 games with a +1 to boot

Gilbert has 1 assist in 8 games with a -2. Since his injury earlier this season he hasnt been quite the same and no doubt hes adjusting to Minnys system. I think hell come in next season and change some of your minds.

Gilbert's definitely looked better the last few games. If we had a half-way decent rest of the team and a healthy top-6 he'd be putting up some points. Not great in the D zone obviously but he's been looking good in the O-zone/working the puck up ice IMO.

Depends which Gilbert you get. His contract year he was good with lots of potential. We signed him for too much money and the next few years he was without doubt the Oilers worst D-man. By far. Bar none. Scream in terror every time he touched the puck omfg bad. He could single handedly lose games for you regularly. This year before he got injured he looked really good. Worked with a shot coach over summer, came into camp in great shape. Was looking like he would finaly be worth his contract. From the time he came back from injury to when he was traded tho... looked much more like the bad Gilbert then the good.

Everything I have heard and seen about Shultz says the Oilers more than likely won this trade by a landslide. Steady reliable D-man. But if the good Gilbert shows up and sticks around... Minny will win in the end.

It's funny how there were alot of Gilbert fan boys who are quick to point out his strengths but can completley ignore multiple YEARS of being the worst d-man on the worst team in the NHL. The most common excuse is that Gilbert was pushed into the top pairing role too often and that playing against the oppositions top players makes it unreasonable to expect him to do well... Weak reasoning in my mind.

With Minny and the Oil doing so poorly I hope it works out for both teams.
