One Hamrlik gone, we need a good 2-way right defenseman to play with Markov at around 4-4.5M next summer.

Next year (2011-12):
Markov - ?
Spacek - Subban
Gill - Gorges

Following year (2012-13):
Hopefuly Tinordi is ready to play with Suban and replace Spacek.
Find a replacement for Gill.

It could allow us to let go AK and upgrade is 3.25M to get a 5M big forward...like Backes!
I agree with the bolded part. From what I understand, Gill has provided strong leadership to the team. He's been protective of Price, has been arguing with Gomez (lol) and has developed a mentor-student relationship with Gorges. If he does well this season, I'd like to see him offered another contract for 1 year. Plus, who knows, maybe the guy has the qualities to become a coach for the defense.
