Gillies is a legit heavyweight, no doubt about it, but there are better fighters. What he's doing in the KHL is a joke. He's making a total coward out of himself.

Gillies isn't a punching bag like Stortini or Kostopoulos. He's not the heavyweight champ some make him out to be.
I know you didn't say that, I'm just still challenging that opinion. I also think what he's doing in the KHL is a joke, that's not the type of fighting I like. I wish he was back over here, doing work in the AHL and maybe seeing a call up or two. I don't blame him for going though, he gets to play with his buddy and probably gets more $$ there. But what he is doing there I don't like.
