Gilroy was fairly decent this year--so far anyway. Though the offensive part of his game hasn't translated well at the NHL level and he's not a physical player and these things are hurting him. Would I have him in instead of Bickel playing forward? That would depend more on the opponent. To be honest I don't think either of them would make a good forward nor do I think either of them are particularly good at their real position. Bickel's much tougher. Gilroy's more talented. Both of them are on the cusp and get to play against grittier players. Gilroy's talent isn't putting pucks in the net and at times he plays like a cream puff. Bickel takes the odd dumb penalty. Not a lot to choose from. As for other options--Gilroy and Bickel both have one way contracts. I think that's playing into this as well.
