It all comes down to this - whose court has the ball? Calgary may look like they're the ones sniffing out Gilmour, but if Dougie asks for too much money, then there are other solutions, such as Cliff Ronning or picking up a contractually-cheap centerman, such as a Marty Murray or a Darby Hendrickson. I'm almost certain Calgary wouldn't touch Gilmour if he asks for anything over $1.5 mil. There are much better options out there than signing a 40-year old centerman with knee problems. The last thing we need is a southern version of Adam Oates.

If he can be had for Dave Lowry - cheap, then yes. But until then, I don't support this idea the slightest. It's a neutral step at best weighing in all the factors.
