Com'on guys. A lot of you are putting Yemelin, right of the bat, with Markov. I don't remember a player, coming from another league, playing at an elite level with a top-10 d-man. (And I know, someone will prove me wrong..) Yemelin has lo learn of to play at a new level: Gill can be, along with Markov, a good mentor to him to reach that level.

Gill's value in the locker room is huge. Remember how a lot of us said that Markov made Streit and Souray 4-5M d-man? Well Gill helped Gorges and Subban to step up crunch time, and becoming great defensmen. And if Markov and Gill can have a good impact to the young d-core of the Habs (Yemelin, Subban, Weber, Diaz) well we're gonna say, 2 years from now, that this money has been spent quite well.
