Thank you Hal. You were a true warrior and teammate during your time here.

Im hoping Nashville wins the cup :yo:

Yeah Hal Gill was awesome
I'm sad seeing him gone

But its great for the habs organisation

Monctonscout 02-17-2012 02:08 PM

Yup, the guy is pure class. Hopefully they go far in the playoffs.

Et le But 02-17-2012 02:10 PM

Beat me to it. :(

Thank you Hal!

You have an awesome personality! Number 1 PK killer in the league!

Farewell buddy and hope you come coach the habs after you retire!

Rbk 02-17-2012 02:25 PM

all the best to you in the new team and to your family!

Get To Know Your Habs won't ever be the same without you, Hal.

The Kremelin Wall* 02-17-2012 02:30 PM

Come back next year, I wouldn't mind fetching this return twice.

Myron Gaines* 02-17-2012 02:31 PM

I wanted him to be my dad. He seems like a cool dad.

PyrettaBlaze* 02-17-2012 02:34 PM

I'm really going to miss Hal... I hope Nashville wins the cup.

WhiskeySeven 02-17-2012 02:36 PM

Gonna miss Skillzy. I think he'll return to montreal at some point though - in whatever capacity.

Skrudland 02-17-2012 02:42 PM

Skillzy!!! I'll miss you in the locker room but this is a good time to part ways. Thanks for your service and for the return you brought us.

Nicko999 02-17-2012 02:49 PM

All the best Hal!!! You will be missed.

Kjell Dahlin 02-17-2012 02:52 PM

This is an appreciation thread so all I will write is: apparently he likes the Black Keys so he is ok in my book! ;)

Habs 4 Life 02-17-2012 02:55 PM

Agreed. Gill has been great in his 3 years here, helped Subban and Gorges and was a great leader for this hockey team. I really wish him good luck in Nashville and I'll also be cheering him on

Good luck and Thank You Hal :handclap:

gusfring 02-17-2012 02:56 PM

Good luck, Hal. Class guy all around.

Em Ancien 02-17-2012 02:57 PM

Best part of the 09 re-tool. I'm sure quite a few of the young guys we have on here wouldn't as far along as they are without him.

capebretoncanadien 02-17-2012 02:58 PM

Thanks for the leadership and godlike PK abilities. :handclap:

Hope you can win the cup again in Nash big guy!!

donghabs98 02-17-2012 03:13 PM

i am going to miss our big defensemen


I hope he returns here when he retires as a coach
the guys like him and the fans

Le Tricolore 02-17-2012 03:15 PM

Going to miss him for sure. Gill is great, both on and off the ice.

canadiensnation 02-17-2012 03:36 PM

Good player good guy. Gonna be missed in the change room and his leadership.

So with him gone:

Gorges "A"
Plekanec "A"
??????? "A"

Blind Gardien 02-17-2012 03:50 PM

Was not a fan of Gill for the longest time when he was with other teams, was not a fan of the signing when we got him... but wow, I was wrong on that one. He was a rock for us and I've been turned 180 on appreciating him in his 3 years here. I hope he does win another Cup with the Preds and would echo the sentiment others have expressed in hoping he might come back as a D coach for us one day! :handclap:

StellerEller 02-17-2012 04:01 PM

Gill was such a great player for us. He went way above what everyone expected, helped take us deep into the playoffs in 2010, and was a class act and a real leader in our locker-room. I also wouldn't be surprised if Gill is responsible for molding Gorges, among others. Best of luck Hal Gill!

Habs13 02-17-2012 04:30 PM

Appreciated his stay with les boys, but glad it's over and he got us a 2nd and two prospects!

Ohashi_Jouzu 02-17-2012 04:50 PM

Thanks for the hard work, Hal. The few things you were good at, you were actually excellent at, at even a back-handed compliment like that is something you can feel proud about. And I'll also concede that, unless PG used some jedi mind tricks, your worth "league-wide" was apparently much higher than I would have guessed or given you credit for.
