I gonna rant in the joke section, nothing is sacred to me.

Hal Gill, I liked him and I could never understand why TO traded him away, we had nothing to replace him with and he provided good value? When I see trades like this or the Antropov trade, Poni trade I think TO seems to be going out of it's way to be bad or even worse. Gill won a cup on Pitts. doing the same things that he did on TO yet he wasn't good enough for TO, WTF.

I think the simple answer is right player for the wrong time.  Same can probably be said for Larry Murphy.  Gill is a good "one of the final few pieces to the puzzle" when trying to build a contender.  In his tenure with Toronto, they weren't even close.  He was looked upon to be something he wasn't and the fans/reporters spent more time looking at how slow he was than realizing the value he provided.

Mark Fraser is a very similar type player today, but he is not knocked nor exposed nearly as much because there are more talented players around him (despite his off year).

Toronto Maple Leafs Jersey History

A Proud Franchise With Strong Tradition And Rich History

13 Stanley Cups

The Toronto Maple Leafs have an incredibly rich history and are arguably the most storied franchise in all of hockey. While the tradition runs deep with 13 Stanley Cups, the last of which came in 1967, the organization was considered a dynasty in the 1940's and 1960's only to be followed by five long decades of drought that began with the Ballard years up until the present day. While a resurgence through the Pat Burns teams of the 1990's and Pat Quinn in the early 2000's brought some respectability back to the organization despite still falling short, the patience of every Leafs fan is at an all time high. And yet an undying support with fierce loyalty for the Blue and White also remains. With the arrival of Brendan Shanahan, Lou Lamoriello and Mike Babcock, Leafs Nation remains cautiously optimistic that our beloved Buds have finally turned the corner to put Canada's Team back on the map.
