I don't know what people imagined here.

Did you guys think he was a dynamo of some kind with his physical attributes? Have you ever watched him play elsewhere? His speed has never been a strength of his, and I for one expecting that. His strength and ability to clear the crease is as good as it gets, though. You won't see him losing a single one-on-one battle along the boards, and as soon as a guy is in front of him, he won't be able to get past him. The only vulnerabilities he's got is whenever there's a quick counter-attack on his flank, but even them, he can close the gap with good anticipation and stick work.

This guy is everything we got with Gill, + physicality.
