Despite my pleas for another NHL defenseman last year they played Gilroy and blew him out. For a stretch early in the season Gilroy was arguably the best defenseman for the Rangers. It didnt last long, but he wasnt all that bad until the wheels fell off. Its difficult for a guy coming out of college playing so many less games to adapt to the NHL lifestyle and schedule.

I'm not saying hes better than Eminger or should be penciled into a starting position, but hes going to be in the discussion. You cant have short memories with players especially when they are going into their second season. I soured on Gilroy too, but he showed he could play at this level.

As far as Im concerned they both have a shot.
