Before you say Gill fills the role of Grossmann or Meszaros better, which I know you will, literally every D besides Gill that's either on our roster or mentioned above fits the Flyers system and method of play better then Gill.
Bourdon is still suffering from concussions and Gervais is definitely not an upgrade. Lauridsen would be my first call-up, but Gill will provide a veteran presence in practice and just sit in the press box. Not a bad investment when you are trying to develop some defensemen.
