Gill's got several things going against him. First of all, he's a big man, and big men never look good when some little buzzsaw is zipping by them at 90 mph. Secondly, his game is alot about positioning, so that when he IS doing the job, it's a very sublte thing, with the forward shooting the puck in or some such. When Gill is doing his job, it looks like the opponent planned on shooting the puck into the corner. When he isn't he looks like a house on the side of the road.

Having said all that, big slow defensemen have been valuable forever in the NHL, and Gill is no exception. He's probably going to play forever, because that's what these guys do, from Allan Stanley to Cory Cross.
