Damn, i just had a big reply written out about Hal Gill, when i hit submit, my connection screwed up..
Here's the gist of it.. Hal Gill had 5 fighting majors this year.. He won one of those fights.. Against Matthew Barnaby.. He lossed to Zdeno Chara and Adam Mair.. He had draws against Jody Shelley and Sheldon Souray..
Now we all know that Barnaby is no more intimidating then a Punching Bag, but he just absorbs the shots.. And what's equally sad, Barnaby could beat up Mair.. LOL..
That's not at all to say that Gill is not tough, he is.. I have seen a lot of his fights and he is big and strong, but comparing him to Belak is like comparing the skill level of Wayne Gretzky to Pat Quinn.
