The Philadelphia Flyers have signed defenseman Hal Gill to a one-year, $700K contract.

Flyers sign Hal Gill to one-year deal.

 SPECTOR’S NOTE: Gill had a training camp tryout with the Flyers, playing well enough to earn a one-year deal worth considerably less than the $2 million per season of his last contract, though he received a buyout from the Predators this summer.  

The 38-year-old blueliner played 32 games last season with the Predators. Some critics might question the addition of an ageing, slow-footed blueliner, but Gill’s experience and leadership could prove invaluable for a defense corps still struggling with the long-term absence of Chris Pronger.

    At 700k, he’s our 7th-8th dman.
    The more I think about it, the more I like the signing.

    I’ll take Hal Gill over Bruno Gervais any day of the week.
