No problem with the idea of acquiring him. All depends on the price. If it's true that he would only waive his NMC for the Rangers, that's fantastic, because all the leverage is Sather's.
Would think a second round pick should be enough to get it done, but I'm wary of the idea of that. This team isn't a Brian McCabe away from being a Cup contender, and have gotten value out of 2nd round lately. I'd be thrilled with the package being Gilroy and a later pick, but I can't imagine Gilroy has all that much value, considering his age and, uh, suckiness.
