If he struggles mightily during the year he can be waived and sent to the A. This isn't a big deal signing. Just extra depth. I actually see nothing wrong with it. There isn't much else out there anyways
Gill can always be sent down without effecting the Cap... only real concern with signing him as I see it is using a Contract Slot, but that can always be addressed is and when it needs to be... This is a one year deal that IMO has been deemed necessary by the number of Back-Line injuries lasts season, and the injury history of some of the D-men now on the roster... and the amount of Concussions and PCS currently occurring in the NHL/Sports and the carefulness allotted them in getting players back on the ice.
