Your memory serves correct. He was quite good in that series, I thought he saved his NHL career there.
Funny thing is that he was the best player outside of Dubi for those 5 games. Feels like an eternity ago given how the org has come along. Gilroy was doing something consistently in HFD that he hardly ever did in NY, and that is block shots.
Still doesn't engage or compete hard enough physically, but a very solid signing.
Like the signing a lot. Glory can be a serviceable bottom pairing dman when needed. Outside of Bickel and Eminger, one of which will be playing everyday, the Rangers lacked anyone else who could even play 10 minutes in a NHL game. Gilroy can. Good depth signing and the contract is great
Gilroy actually looked good in TB at the beginning of the season last year. Due to injuries he was sometimes playing top4. He is what he is. He is a great skater who can play 10-12 minutes a game consistently if need be. If people think Gilroy is bad they should look at who the Rangers had before signing him ready for the NHL.
