And also this.^

Obviously, Gilroy's game needs further development, but he has one thing you can't teach: great skating speed.

While it's an open question as to whether or not that advantages him normally against other D, those who want to dump him should think twice.

We just traded for McCabe, and supposedly this guy is decent otherwise but can't skate anymore (why his value was so down). If that's true, he should be paired with someone who can haul ass skating backward, just in case.

Of the Ds on the roster, that was MDZ and Gilroy; since MDZ apparently needs the same refresher course Gilroy never really had originally, that leaves only Gilroy.
