Del Zotto has also played on the 2nd pairing against better players while Gilroy has played on the bottom pairing for far fewer games.

Del Zotto has made his mistakes, and hasn't been as dynamic as last year for sure, but I don't think sending him to the A is really going to help him that much.

Also, Gilroy's performance last night and the reaction here reminds me more of Prucha's last few years in NY. Every time he got a game and scored a goal this whole board would blow up and claim that he's back, that he's figured it out, and that the confidence he was playing with would change everything. We'll see I guess, but I don't have very high hopes.
