A little scouting report on Hal Gill
There are basically two things you need to know about Gill:
1. He is the best PK Dman in the NHL.
2. Come playoff time he becomes one of the best 5on5 defensive defensman in the game as well.
He's a big reason why the Habs have been great in the playoffs the last couple years (7th game OT against the eventual SC champ Bruins last year, and EC finals the year before), and he was a defensive force for Pittsburgh when they won the cup. He's a true leader/warrior to boot, and in the playoffs he's able to clutch and grab in a way that he just isn't able to get away with int he regular season.
If you accept him for what he is, and recognize that it isn't going to be pretty at times over the rest of the the regular season, you'll love him. He's a true playoff performer, and obviously that's why you guys acquired him.
