07:26 AM ET 08.21 | For a former eighth-round pick, Hal Gill has fashioned for himself a somewhat remarkable NHL career that includes more than 1,100 games, but now he's just hoping for work. Now, he is one of a few dozen notable unrestricted free agents that have yet to sign with a new team, a huge group put out of work in part due to the salary cap dropping for the first time and by nearly $6-million. "I thought it would have been a good fit to play with [Preds super prospect] Seth Jones and help him out so I was surprised," Gill said. ... "I hope there's a team that will look at me, and we'll see how it goes." He doesn't yet consider retirement an option, either. "I want to play," he said. "I'm here and I'm still have the desire, ultimately, to win but to just play and to be a part of it."

"But now he's just hoping for work."

If he has any IT skills Fan Nation could use him.

Always a fan of Gill. In Toronto he was the typical put on a pedestal player that couldnt live up to stupid expectations. Good solid career.

Islanders have made a habit of taking players that are very near or just past their expiration date...
