Girardi has amazing positioning, but his footspeed is pretty slow. And he's prone to getting torched 1v1 because of it. If he could somehow improve that aspect of his game, I would be prone to agree with you.
On Gilroy: I don't see how anyone can really be dissatisfied with his play this series. He pretty clearly has elevated his game, and has not made too many mistakes. He was responsible for that play Gordon made to setup that goal in game 2, but otherwise he's been pretty solid. Nobody has any delusions as to what Gilroy is: a 7th D. If we can get him on the cheap, he's as good an option as any.
