Our PK would suffer instantly if we had to lose Gill.

Also, he's a great veteran presence that is much needed along this young defensive squad.

Best teams in penalty killing
1- New Jersey 93,4% (7/106)
2- Montreal 89,3% (13/121)

Short handed time on ice per game
1- Matt Carkner 5:21
10- Hal Gill 4:02
20- Josh Gorges 3:43
31- Anton Volchenkov 3:22
but a the same time, it's december and his 'slow-start' isn't getting any faster. his E5 play is getting worse. would a guy like gill accept being 7th dman?
