He was too small to be a fighter but he would always defend a teammate, taking on the much larger Brett Lindros one night after Lindros had crushed Todd Gill into the boards. Gilmour was a gifted play-maker with a deft passing touch and he scored just enough goals to be a threat. Give him some wingers to work with – as the Leafs did with Glenn Anderson, Wendel Clark, Nik Borschevsky, and Dave Andreychuk – and Gilmour could make anyone with a little talent look like a star. Unlike many attackers, he paid attention to defence, and he was the best two-way players on the team.

….

He was an incredible warrior and his face often showed the tremendous beating he was taking to get the Leafs past Detroit and St. Louis and almost Los Angeles.

He scored 131 goals and 321 assists for 452 points to average 1.15 points-per-game during the regular season play and added 17 goals and 60 assists for the 77 points to average 1.48 points-per-game in the play-offs. Gilmour’s 127 points in 1992-93 and 11 points in 1993-94 are first and third, respectively, on the Leafs all-time list. His 95 assists in 1992-93 and 84 assists in 1993-94 are first and second in Leafs annals. Number 93’s playoff totals in assists and points both zoomed to number one on the club; his 25 assists in 1993 and 22 assists in ’94 are one-two by a Leaf in the postseason. His six assists during a 6-1 win over Minnesota on February 13, 1993, equaled the Leafs record that defenceman Babe Pratt had set on January 8, 1944.

….

Gilmour emerged as the central force in restoring pride in the organization. While he always credited the march of the Leafs to the final four in 1993 and ’94 as a total team achievement, there’s no question those developments would never have happened without Gilmour. At 5’9” and 177 pounds soaking wet, Gilmour repeatedly sparked the Leafs and proved that, despite the NHL’s swing to behemoths, the game still had room for relentless little guys.

If you need a goal, he sets one up. If you need an emotional lift, he delivers a big hit. Either way, you’re glad Killer is on your side.
