If one of them gets injured we will likely have only a single offensive d-pairing.

What did you want Gauthier to do? Undermine our ability to retain Subban, Price and Eller next year by signing Wizniewski to a 4-year, 20 million dollar contract?

Personally, I think it might have been better to let Gill go, and sign Hamrlik to an inflated 1-year contract that he would accept (i.e., 5.5 million dollars). Next year Diaz, Weber, etc will be ready. However, they obviously liked Gill's intangibles.
