Could the USS Hal Gill be sailing back into Pittsburgh waters?

Interesting bit of info from Bruce Garrioch of the Ottawa Sun:

Montreal D Hal Gill will be a hot commodity once the Habs decide to start unloading. The Flyers, Penguins, Panthers and Senators all have interest. Don’t be surprised if Pittsburgh brings back Gill; the Penguins never wanted to lose him to free agency weeks after he helped them win the Cup in 2009 ..

Hmm… this would be an excellent move in our opinion. We lived and died almost every shift with Hal Gill in the 2009 playoffs. He would give the Pens some serious experience and depth on the back-end. Not that Engo and Niskanen haven't been solid. Gill was in Malkin's mouth last Friday night and played a really strong defensive game.

Gill's cap hit is 2.25 million.
