Dallas would be fortunate if Vance had a career like Gill's. In all likelihood Vance won't even have a tenth of the career Gill had (1,000 NHL games + 100 playoff games).

Gill is respected around the league for his defensive play ... especially on the PK. He's a guy that could still earn a Top 6 role on most teams even at 37 years old.

Every draft pick can't be a first line forward or #2 D. Gill has been a respected Top 4 D the majority of his career, and even now at 37 he's effective on the PK and in a Top 6 role.
