Gilroy is a lock in the top 7, even if a vet is brought in.

Thats basically a given, unless he screws up completly. The thing is, with 2-3 kids on the blueline, and none of them beeing extremely steady (like Marc Staal), they will have their ups and downs. Even if like Sanguinetti and Michael Sauer plays superb in camp, they won't be superb for 82 straight games, they'll probably will struggle to line up 10 straight games at a high level.

Camp is a pretty short sample, pre-season games is played at a much lower level then normal NHL games, and Torts knows that. At the worst for Gilroy he'll find himself in a group of 3 kids competing for 2 spots.
