This seems like the writing on the wall for at least one, likely two, of our dmen. If I had to guess, Gill and Blum won't be back in gold. Keep in mind that is 9 NHL Dmen IF we don't trade for/sign anyone else. Way too many bottom pairing guys. Fenton said he expects Ekholm to win a spot on the big club, FWIW.
I have always liked Gill as a penalty killing specialist but he is limited in every other way. I would say it depends on whether he can be replaced by an Ekholm.
