He played a few games at wing for the Rangers and I thought that was a really good move, he could easily step into a 3rd line role if needed I think.
He won the Hobey Baker as a defenseman. The issue with Gilroy is the same as it ever was: his best success came as an overaged player playing against kids in college.

He lacks hockey IQ. And that will be the on the wing or on the blueline.
