As a defenceman, he brings something intriguing to the table. A skillset that most defencemen don't have. He should be able to bring the puck out of the zone on his own from the back end. I think a team that lacks defensive depth might value his offensive abilities and put him in a position to use them.
I've actually always wondered why he came to the Rangers, with our strong defensive prospect pool, he's not put himself in a position to shine.
He came here because he knew he would be given a chance to make the team right out of camp, which he did.
However, he ended up sucking so bad that pretty much everyone hates him now. Honestly, i was on the gilroy boat and was a guy who thought he would have a better year this year, but imo hes been even worse. Cut ties with him and package him in a deal for ANYTHING, or else send him down, save the cap space and dont resign him next year.
Still not upset with the signing seeing as we basically bought an extra draft pick, just so happened it didnt work out. No loss here
