Gilbert and Grebeshkov are soft, scared, turnover machines. I would jump for joy if we got rid of Gilbert. I wouldnt care if we got anything back either.
Not that I don't agree with you, but I can't understand why we'd trade away both Gilbert and Grebs. Not unless we're getting a better, young ddefenseman back. I doubt we enter the rebuild with our best d-prospects being Chorney and Peckham.
There's plenty of time to trade Gilbert in the next couple of years. We should be looking to trade either Souray or Visnovsky first. Especially is all we get for him is the return we got for Grebs. Let's wait to see if Gilbert gains some trade value before selling him off for a pick.
EXACTLY. The deadline isn't the last day to make trades until next year, etc.
I don't care if Gilbert is young. He isn't good!
I don't think that's fair to say. He had 45 points last season, was +6 and wasn't a liability. The thing with Gilbert is that he's a #4 Dman that needs a legit #3 so he doesn't get exposed. Grebeshkov was probably our best overall Dman last season and was a legit #3 and Gilbert looked good. This season he took a step back and Gilbert did too. He's a good Dman but he needs someone that can cover for him so he can play his game...cause when on his game he's pretty good.
My biggest issue is that our #4 Dman is making 4M a year.
