Larry Brooks at the NY Post reports that the Rangers have signed Matt Gilroy to a $650,000, one-year deal.
Gilroy has 6g, 9a in 34 games with the Whale this season and is a -16.
...nothing wrong with a little depth on the blueline.
...while he has been horrific defensively with the Whale this season, he could be used if the Rangers power play faulters again this year.
I like Gilroy. I think it's a good depth move and can even play on the 3rd or 4th line if we want to shake things up.
agreed, and I think he and Del Zotto will push each other as they battle for a spot on the 3rd combo
@AnnoyingJoe I like that 3rd pairing under the right circumstances. They could create some offense if the maintain some defensive responsibily.
Our defense will be just as good as last year though, especially if Staal steps it up. I thought Staal played very poorly last year especially in the corners and in front of the crease. All my friends think I'm crazy.
