You explain that to me, and you explain how signing a guy who takes chincy little minor penalties and is softer than butter is going to improve that.
I agree, this signing does not look all that good, unless Gillis made this move as a building block to trade away a couple of our other soft forwards.
If Gillis cant see this team is lacking in grit up front, then I really question his ability to judge his hockey club.
I have a hard time beleiving Gillis would trade his buddy Demitra, but as of right now I would love to see it happen. That 4M contract is a killer.
