Gilroy Sent Down; Wind-burn Not Suspected

In our recap summarizing last night’s Hawks/Rangers game, we described Matt Gilroy, 2009 Hobey Baker winner, as “not an NHL defensemen.” 

This after Dustin Byfuglien blew his doors off for the game winner in overtime.  Gilroy, 25, made himself look like a forward caught covering for a defenseman in the neutral zone as Byfuglien skated around him like he was standing still en route to potting the game winner.

Fast forward to this morning when the Rangers sent Gilroy to Hartford of the AHL.

And, while the move seems to be one forced by salary and reviews on Gilroy haven’t been quite so poor, it’s still a wee-bit interesting, no?

    Funny you should mention Mr. Gilroy.

    Les Rangeurs de Nouvelle Yorque have been having their is-youze for several months now, and even The Torts’ contortions can’t seem to shake the shirkers who sprinkle The Boys From Broadway.

    “No mi problema, senor”.

    How ’bout dem Buffaloes tonight? Pat Lalime gets to make the scene facing his former mates.

    SouperMan and 20Cent return to their old stomping grounds.

    Prognosis/predictions, FifthFeatherers?
