I don't think anybody would defend Gilroy's cap hit. But Gilroy was a UFA so we had to outbid other teams. that is why he got so much.

he is by no means our most physical defender. Staal is. I don't care if he lead the team in hits. he is a pansy in front of the net. Doesn't move anybody. He also consistently got schooled one on one for his entire career. His passing has diminished, and he has a really weak shot.

It's not his fault that our other dmen outside of Staal, and Rosy are incompetent defensively. But this should by no means equal us paying an absurd price for him, especially as a RFA.
