first of all, not to split hairs and all, but one might reasonably suggest that there is a HUGE difference between 1 pt in 18 games and 11pts in 23 games... one contributes offensively once every 18 games, the other once every 2 games. Can you really not see the difference?

a more apt devils comparison would be Ken Danyeko... who was a very valuable member of the devils cup winning teams, but NEVER considered their MVP. Gill is much in the same boat.

He would not have been even a top 5 Conn Smythe candidate.
Halak, Cammy, Gionta, Pleks, Gomez, Subban all were more valuable all around, and as far as one-dimensional contributions go, having watched every playoff game, I'd argue strongly that Gorges was a bigger influence than Gill was, as Gorges didn't give up as much space as the immobile Gill did on a regular basis.

I mean let's stop and think for a second...

were you really trying to compare Gill to Stevens...
- all time leader in games played by a Dman
- 5x first or second NHL All-Star team
- 13 all-star games
- team captain (3 cups in the process)
- conn smythe winner
- .56 ppg regular season, .51ppg playoffs (and note that his lack of offensive production is the only thing that stopped him from being a Norris and potentially Hart trophy winner)

- .18 ppg regular season, .06ppg playoffs
- has a really big stick

im all for discussion, but it's hard to take someone seriously when they make such nonsensical comparisons.
