Two games won’t be the deciding factor on whether Hal Gill sticks around or not on his tryout deal.

Gill played in Sunday’s 4-3 exhibition loss in London Ont. to Toronto and in Tuesday’s 3-2 loss to the Rangers at the Wells Fargo Center.

Sources say Gill will make the trip to Lake Placid early Thursday where the Flyers will continue their camp through the weekend.

The 38-year-old Gill is fighting thick odds with nine defensemen already here on one-way contracts.

While the 6-foot-7 defenseman is in amazing shape he looked a little slow in both games in coverage areas.

“In a normal situation when you have a contract you worry about progressing and getting better in every game” Gill said. “In this situation I wanted to speed up the process. But it was good. It was nice to get out there and be competitive and play. I felt good. Like preseason you’re learning a new system and timing needs to get there.”

The Flyers are taking between 26-28 players to Lake Placid.

“I can show that I am healthy and ready to go and I have that desire” Gill said. “I want to be part of the team. I don’t have to show people what I can do. I’ve been doing the same thing a long time.”

He had a defensive overplay with Mark Alt in the loss to the Rangers that allowed for Benoit Pouliot’s easy point-blank rebound in the third period for the winning goal.

Absent of a major injury or trade it remains hard to see this 15-year veteran making the roster but coach Peter Laviolette said Gill will get more looks.

“Hal did a good job” Laviolette said. “His job is to keep the puck and keep people away from our net and he’s done a pretty good job of that. His best asset is defending.

“Think back to Hal in his career and when he is most noticeable it’s him taking care of the front of the net. Him being physical on top-end players. We’ll get a better look and better read on Hal as the camp moves on.”

Laviolette did admit his skating might not grab your attention but that was never his primary asset anyway.

“His strengths are different” Laviolette said. “He’s big he defends he ties up bodies he clears the net ... plays that type of game.”
