In the grand scheme of things, Gilmour was one of the better two-way centers to play the game during the time he
played. And he wasn't exactly a big man, either. That's what's remarkable about it.
Even more remarkable was that he wasn't known as a scorer or a playmaker in juniors. That came when he got more
playing time with the Blues.
Needless to say, though, that he did fit in with the Devils when he played for them and was able to contribute 40 assists
with the team in his only FULL (in caps for emphasis) season. Also, in both postseasons that the Devils played in with
him on the team, he was their best player.
This was the start of his bounce-around period, as he would be moved to a new team every couple of seasons up until
his retirement in 2003. After the Blackhawks, he was traded to the Sabres in 2000, signed with Montreal at the
beginning of the 01-02 season, and returned to the Maple Leafs in 2003 for a game.
In 2006, the Leafs hired him as a player development advisor. Two years later, he was reassigned to coaching, being
named an assistant for the AHL's Toronto Marlies for the season. However, that was short-lived, as in November, he
left to become the head coach of the OHL's Kingston Frontenacs. He would do that job until 2011, when he would be
promoted to GM, and has been doing that since.
