Gilroy is not getting a QO this summer.

Nieuwendyk scouted him for the Leafs who offered the same financial package but only a 2 way contract. Perhaps Nieuwendyk could negotiate a cheaper two year deal with Gilroy's agent Kent Hughes. Petr Prucha signed for less than his QO in exchange for a 2 year deal.
I wouldn't be half surprised to see that happen. Or Gilroy get traded for a mid/low draft pick.

I don't hate Gilroy, I think he shows flashes of play that many defencemen simply cannot do. That said, I wish he were better at certain things that most defencemen do quite well...
