I want you guys to look at Washington defense core, and notice that they aren't overstocked with undersized, nonphysical defensemen.
I think I'm a fair critic. Gilroy's strength is embarrassing. 90% of AHL defensemen are stronger in the corners than he is. He was brought in to be an offensive defenseman and he has what? 15 points over 2 years? I'm not buying it.
Why, if he isn't scoring or strong, is he still around? Because his positioning is so damn good? McDonagh has already become 3x the defenseman Gilroy is. His skating is overrated, he can pivot nicely but doesn't have any straightaway speed.
There are many better options out there. One of them; Steve Eminger is an impending UFA.
