It's a decent depth signing. Dirt cheap. I've always liked Gill even though he's played for a ton of my team's rivals.

I'd personally rather play him than Gervais. He shouldn't be in the Flyers' top six, so what harm is it? He'll play when he's needed and sit in the press box the rest. Not a bad guy to have around the team either. He has a Cup ring and has been a leader during his career.

He's slow but when he gets a chance to play he'll be good on the PK still. He fits the typical Flyers mold of mean and nasty and he can still clear the crease. You could do much worse for depth.
