If he plays like this he's not a bad 6th d-man. I wouldn't mind replacing him externally, though, and I don't know if he's going to keep it up.
"Couldn't hack it".

He averaged 17+ minutes in Tampa, 17 points, +2

In Ottawa averaged 17+ minutes. Even +/-.

His two previous years with the Rangers he averaged 16+ and 14+ minutes. Even and +5. Scored 15 and 11 points. In the playoffs the second year he was one of our better players.

Thus far in two games he's even. No goals allowed. Averaging 9+ minutes.

Gilroy is a good player. The blind hate is ridiculous. Yes Tampa and Ottawa put him in a larger role then he can handle in the NHL.

He's a player, not without flaws. He's a good #5-#6. Bottom pair defenseman. With controlled minutes and less on his plate he can contribute.
