I know many people here were not able to see him in TB but when Gilroy was partnered with Brewer he actually played pretty well. He was using his skating A LOT more and he complimented the slow-footed physical style of Brewer and it helped to settle Gilroy down as well.

He is a more than adequate depth defenseman. I would go as far as to say he is a more than adequate #6 defenseman. If an upgrade is necessary than make a trade for a player at the deadline to increase depth.

He is playing on a mess of a team with no real compliment to his game and he has 3 points in 3 games playing in front of rookie goalies.

On the topic of Jean, I am more than intrigued. I am hoping both he and Hrivik can have good seasons this year and continue taking the necessary steps forward. So far so good for the big guy.
