Gill was a good partner because he's a defensive D, as simple as that. Where I personally feel he was good for PK was during scrums. He's not much of a scrapper, but thanks to his size he can bear hug just about anybody. So in terms of protecting your superstar rookie, he did a great job. That's the main reason why I think Gill was paired with him. It happenend coincidentally at the same time PK was getting a lot more attention from his opponents.
Well said Kriss. I think PK actually helped Gill on the ice more than Gill helped PK. Gill was slow getting to corners and PK was there to bail him out.

No way should we pay Gorges over 3million and there is no way we should sign him to 7 or 8 years either. I like him, but he's replaceable and maybe even upgradable at 3-4m.
