Matt Gilroy

Will Matt Gilroy get another shot at the NHL this year? He was overhyped, but put up respectable numbers with Tampa (obviously he's not a top pairing D) before being shipped off to Ottawa. Do the Sens have any interest in re-signing him or will he test his luck elsewhere?

Was awful with Ottawa and no way he comes back. Bottom pairing defenseman on a bad team at best.

Someone likely gives him a 1 yr under a million, he shows spurts but overall is a huge dissapointment. Maybe he should learn to play some wing? Seriously he can skate well

He can play in the Hawaiian league because according to his hype he could skate on water.

I was watching a video of all 60 of Stamkos' goals, and Gilroy set up a few of them with really nice plays. I'm sure he'll get a contract somewhere, he's got skills, he's just gotta be consistent.

1 year 800k to 1M on a team that needs depth.

Vitto telling it like it is here. I don't see him shy away from contact, but effectively he's usually a creampuff. Still, he has decent + overall skills and is very strong, possibly superior skater for speed.

He's finesse, but not enough finesse to be a lite version of Letang. Remember him only as a minimally decent wrister, no slap shot at all.

W would be worth trying.

You don't want him. Ottawa fans were crying for Brian freaking Lee back after we saw him play.

His decent point totals were a result of the Stamkos effect. Brian Lee is not a 30-35 point d-man in the NHL right now(close to his pace with Tampa).

I can't describe how much I don't want to see him on the Senators. He was terrible in the regular season, and only played passable for a few games. He was just all over the place with the puck and positioning most of the time. I can think of at least 4 sens prospects that would be better suited than him at this point(and there not even that good).

Nobody wants this guy, watching his brief stint in Ottawa literally made me sick. He played awful. #7 D-man on the worst defensive core in the league.

He has a decent offensive upside but just does the most boneheaded things defensively in his own zone. He's not skilled enough to be a PP QB or PMD. Gilroy does though have a Lundqvist like hairdo. The man has style.

Someone takes a shot at him. Way too much skill with 3 or 4 year NHL experiance not to take a shot.

As long as he doesn't re-sign with us I'll be happy.

To be honest, I can't take how bad he is yet he always, always plays well against the Devils. I wonder if they sign him just so he can stop hurting them lol

Near the end of his time with Rangers I wanted to see him play some wing, just don't see him as a dman.

But I thought Stamkos was just a product of Martin St. Louis...

I think he'll get something, because surely there is a team out there who is lacking a bit of depth and offensive on the backend. If not though, it's definitely possible his time in the NHL is finished.
