Gilroy Could Be Dealt for a Center

gilroy2Bruce Garrioch at the Ottawa Sun reports that the Rangers could be looking to move Matt Gilroy…

“If the Rangers decide to go get a centre, and they’re expected to make a move for Richards before the trade deadline, they may deal D Matt Gilroy as part of package. The 26-year-old has a cap hit of $1.75 million and will be an RFA next summer. He’s been passed on the depth chart by Steve Eminger and Michael Sauer. Gilroy is young enough that he could bring return. GM Glen Sather can’t afford to wait much longer.”

…i normally don’t read much into what Garrioch is reporting, but Gilroy seems to be the odd man out this season and it wouldn’t surprise me at all if he is moved. With his recent surge in play his trade value has probably gone up. Sell high Glen, sell high.
