Valentenko would be a better option on the bottom pair next year. He is a shot blocking machine and will add toughness on the blueline. Or get a real offensive defensemen that could help the powerplay, Gilroy is awful.
Gilroy has got in to the D in the playoffs ahead of Eminger and Del Zotto on merit. No way Torts picks him for any other reason than merit. If the coaching staff thought he stunk he would have been shown the door by now.
