Hal Gill signs with the Montreal Canadiens

Two years, $2.25 million per season for the big defenseman to join Les Habs.

Gill reportedly took the offer back to the Penguins to see if they would/could match, but Ray Shero obviously decided not to.

Gill becomes the first significant member of the Penguins Stanley Cup winning team to move on.  Acquired for a 2nd and 5th round pick at the trading deadline in 2008, Gill was a solid addition to the Pens blueline.

Three cheers for the USS Hal Gill.
