There was a few of us who wanted Hamrlik back instead, Hammer might be near the end but he's well rounded, the type of player we needed in such an inexperienced defense when Markov was still an unknown. Gill is one of the main reasons the Habs PK is one of the best in the league but that's all he brings this team right now besides "leadership"

The good thing about Gill though is he'd be very valuable to a contender at the deadline.
