Next year, he would be a very, very reliable bottom pairing defenseman, possibly a decent #4. By reliable, I don't mean I think he is going to excel right away, I just mean he can really help out and won't make any bonehead plays.

If he is signed, I could see this...
Staal-Girardi
Gilroy-Redden/Rozsival
Mara-Sanguinetti

Although I would avoid having two rookies on defense, Gilroy is already 24/25, so he is probably less prone to the inevitable mental mistakes by young defenseman.
