As for Gilroy's defense, he's been passable the last few weeks. He's made some good outlet passes as well. He's a solid 5th defenseman, and he's turned out to be a good signing by Sather. I just don't think he has the defensive intelligence to be more than a bottom-pairing guy in this league, though. I see him out of position more than he should be, and he seems to intent on the offensive attack.

I don't expect him to be here after this year.
Almost sounds like you are talking about MDZ

Dont get me wrong I love MDZ, own a jersey of his. But he has to get his confidence back and work a little harder. And I don't think that you can say Gilroy is mature, and has played big time hockey. This is the next level and he has done a great job. Just gotta give him some props, and move on. I do agree with you though that he might end up being the odd one out eventually.
