Gilroy is getting chances and doesnt look bad in his own end. Sooner or later he will start to translate these chances
He looks mediocre in his own end. Can't contain forecheckers, somewhat weak along the boards, can't clear the slot, and not smart enough to be Karlsson (ie always in position to tie up a stick or force a turnover). Not fast enough and good enough with his hands to be able to get himself out of his mistakes either.

That said, I agree that he's certainly got room to improve. He reminds me of Sam Gagner earlier this year; you can see he's got the tools, he's just not got quite getting the results.
