Matt Gilroy: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Gilroy underwhelmed with the Rangers, but the Bolts could be the perfect up-tempo fit for his game. He's a poised puck-mover with a smooth, effortless stride and excellent speed. And his passes hit the tape of speedy forwards with accuracy. He's best described as a finesse defender who relies on his stick and speed in his own zone, something that can be masked somewhat if paired with (somewhat) steadier Brett Clark or Pavel Kubina. But he'll have a tough time breaking camp as anything more than a sixth or seventh defender. He's waiver material until he shows us he can excel in Guy Boucher's system.
The former Hobey Baker Award winner signed a two-year, $3.5 million deal with the Rangers prior to last season, and unfortunately, he disappointed in his first year on Broadway. Gilroy notched four goals and 11 assists in 69 games for the Rangers before being a healthy scratch in the teamís final eight contests. The Rangers have high hopes for the youngster, and considering the fact that they are fairly thin on defense, there is a good chance Gilroy will be able to crack the opening day lineup. Even if he does, itís likely that Gilroy doesnít factor much into the 2010-11 fantasy season.
The Rangers have extremely high hopes from the former Hobey Baker Award winner, though he's not guaranteed a roster spot come opening day. If Gilroy is unable to make the team out of camp, he'll be on the shortlist of defensemen to receive the call should injuries strike the Rangers. New York played musical chairs with their young defensemen quite a bit last year, so Gilroy will certainly have an opportunity to see NHL ice this season.
