...although this might be a vote of confidence in Gilroy, despite his four minutes of ice time vs. Boston last night.
I'm hoping the next headline will be.." #NYR Have Called Up Defenseman McIlrath For Toughness Purposes" :)
My gut feeling is there is a lot more behind this move but it could just be they want him to play. It just doesn't make sense considering Gilroy's ice time has gone down each game.
He hasn't been playing much at all. This will give eminger a chance to get some serious ice time. Plus the whale has been up and down. This could help their game as well. Practice doesn't keep you in game shape. AHL Playing time > NHL Practice time
Gilroy never should have left the Rangers! He was always a solid D man and always have liked him! Great game last night even though we gabe up the lead but still got the W! LGR
