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.
He's also been forced to play with McCabe, who has been atrocious. I'm hardly a Gilroy fan, but I'd be perfectly content with him in a 7th d-man role if he can play like he has this series when called upon.
