I understand the need to fill the role, but it seems like he didn't bring enough to the table. There's about 20 guys in the Amerks camp now, with 12 or so more due tomorrow. Seems to me like that makes him about the 50th best guy in camp. Want to quibble about Szydlowski and Parker? That makes Gilles about the 48th best guy in camp.
The team that's being put together in Rochester looks like the best in years. I don't understand the love for Gillies. They can always call him up from the ECHL if they feel the need.
