Please don't get me wrong. I'm rooting for him. I'm just not counting on him.

Gilroy's late growth spurt doesn't change the fact that his accomplishments came against players much younger than himself and at the college level. I think Heikkenen might be a better prospect as a late bloomer because he performed in the Finnish Elite league against grown men, not boys.

As for the money Sather gave him, are you suggesting Sather is always good with money?
