His contribution to one of the best lines ever to play is something that is hall of fame worthy.
He could do it all. Fight, hit, score....
I prefer Gilles being in the Hall of Fame to our(Edmonton's) own Grant Fuhr being there.
Gilles over Gratn Fuhr? Okay now I've heard everything! Fuhr is in there ahead of Gilles that's for sure. He won a Vezina Trophy in '88. And minus the 5 Cups he won with Edmonton, take a look at his stellar clutch play in the '87 Canada Cup vs. the Soviets. When the game is on the line you wanted Fuhr in net. Gilles was just a good player thats it. Bourne, Goring, Tonelli were also good on those teams. I'd take Tonelli over Gilles.
