He chooses to let you walk.

Sure you can go back to him and ask for a job and take less money then you were making...but if you were going to take less money wouldn't you want to do it somewhere you felt like you could show something? And not stay with the guy who had the chance to keep you but didn't want you?

So while possible, it'd be surprising if he re-signed him if we didn't offer him his QO.
Would it be that surprising though? If Gilroy gets the feeling that there is going to an open spot on the Rangers blueline he might feel he's better off signing a cheap one year deal with a club where he knows the system and is likely to play NHL hockey. That way he can show he belongs and look to sign a better deal next off-season
