Gorgeous photo by The Gazette’s Allen McInnis of Canadiens defenceman Hal Gill warming up in the bowels of Mellon Arena just before 6 p.m. tonight:

Yes, God knows he doesn`t move enough on the ice! He doesn`t block enough shots or save Halak`s rear end time and time again with his moves! Some people are never happy.
…IF only He can move like THAT on the ice !
Habitant means PASSIONATE HOCKEY
I’m glad I’m not the only one that saw Saku Koivu for what he really
was. I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; Saku Koivu couldn’t
lead flies to a cow patty. Overrated. He faded for long stretches during the season, and became invisible in tough games all too often. Gionta and Gomez are showing more leadership and determination than Koivu ever did.
…Mr. Smith, You are talkin’ to One of Hal’s biggest Fans making ‘a Funny’ …so don’t jump so quickly on Your potentially misjudged-perceptions before You know of Whom You are speakin’ to
…Mr. Gill, Himself, acknowledges He is a Tugboat on the ice …and, You don’t have to explain to Me Hal Gill’s value to Our Team
Love the determination from Gill, setting a good example for young players
I can’t say enough on how this cast of leaders has turned around the mood of this team…These guys that were brought in are all winners. I hate to say it but Saku never really knew what it took to win.
Does anyone miss Kovalev, Komiserek, Koivu, Tanguay et all now?
I think Hal Gill is great!
I picked this quote up from a Pittsburg site.
<But Max Talbot does not see it the same way because he feels it is a
discredit to the way the plucky Canadiens are playing.
Great photo! Captures the easy power and athleticism of Gill’s gameday sprint. The “power” equipment in the backgrounf helps put a finer point on it, too!
You know all year i thought Gill was a Big Pilon that Gainey screwed up and bought for way too much…..
Now that playoffs are here and well under way……I must go and cook some more “crow” !!!!!I guess Gainey wasn,t the loser a lot of people thought after all>>> on that note notice how he,s showing his face allot more after the upset on the Caps???

Do you agree with Canadiens GM Marc Bergevin's decision to stick with a defence-first identity?
