Gilroy gets a bad rap
on here and it's not entirely deserved. Yeah, he hasn't played up to near the level we hoped for when we signed him, but he's still become
a serviceable NHL dman
. He's a 6th/7th dman and
will be paid accordingly
. And he still has some offensive ability.
It doesn't hurt us
at all to re-sign him for cheap.
If better options become available, he can earn his NHL salary in Hartford or be traded. It's a no-lose proposition for the Rangers.
A very logical unbiased post I think, and I agree. Waaay better than wasting $$ and cap space on some bogus "enforcer".
Also: Excellent post by Ola
