Gill will be used in a limited role as a good positional defender and PK specialist who can handle big forwards in the middle of the ice. What does O'Brien do? He plays a limited role as a good positional defender and PK specialist who can handle big forwards in the middle of the ice.
O'Brien tends to be a little too hands-on at times and ends up in the box as a result, but there really isn't a huge gulf between him and Gill. Both played well for their respective clubs in similar capacities, and both have earned their money.
You answered your own pondering here. O'brien is in the box too much when he's supposed to be on the pk.
Edit: Also, great $ for Gill...I was thinking we'd have to toss about 2.5 at him for him to stay but to wrap him up for 2 is icing on the cake gives us more room to use on a Center/LW combo
