I honestly can't stop laughing at this thread....sorry!!! Hal Gill seems like a good guy, he's probably a good teammate in the dressing room cracking jokes and making people laugh...but on the ice....he's just painful to watch!!! His play 5 on 5 is ROTTEN!! He's too slow and not physical enough to be an asset moving forward. He might be decent on the PK...but he's certainly no better than anybody else we could throw out there on the PK.

If the Habs can get a 2nd or 3rd round pick for Gill before or on the deadline....they HAVE to take it. There is absolutely no reason why the Habs are scratching guys like Emelin, Diaz, Weber or Campoli over a guy like Gill. All 4 of those guys can at least skate and are willing to throw a body check once in a while....where Gill does neither.

The Habs made a huge mistake when they signed Gill over Hamrlik. Hammer was a much better veteran and mentor for our younger players IMO.....plus Hammer can skate!!
