I think we've gotten exactly what we were expecting out of Gill and AK.

Gill is most effective at killing penalties and small forwards, but is turrrble at the point on offense. He actually has 5 assists...but a lot of that is due to his heady defensive play. Breakout passing has been better than I expected it to be. He might be slower than Andrew Brunette skating through quicksand, but he has surprising reach and has saved himself defensively on plays he was clearly beat on.

AK is streaky, to say the least...he's been bouncing around lines, though, so it's understandable. He has looked good with his brother, and Radulov, and occasionally with Legwand. I don't think any of us were expecting him to be a PPG player, but 11 points (4G 7A) in 18 games. That said, he's been having a slow offensive year, and his production has actually improved some in his time here.

As for Bouillon...lately he's been on a tear. 4 goals in his last 13 games...when he had 1 in his previous 87 (or so).
