A week ago I wrote a piece on Gilroy and a surge of Long Island talent beginning to emerge at significant levels.  Nice to see a player of his caliber and character come home and sign with the Blueshirts.  While its pleasing to see this come about for those reasons, its also a very strong pickup with for the Rangers.  Even though he is not eligible to play in this year’s playoffs, Gilroy has the age, maturity, and skill-set to make a run at a roster spot come training camp next year.  At 24 years old, he is predictably farther along in development than the likes of Del Zotto and possibly Sanguinetti (possibly).  During his tenure at BU, the co-captain showed he is both versatile (37 points in 45 games on the blue line), durable (145 consecutive games played), and a legend in his own right (one of BU’s only three-time 1st Team All-Americans).  A wealth of experience playing in college hockey’s most storied programs and toughest conference also doesn’t hurt.  I personally am very excited about this pickup and the prospect of having a blueline with the likes of Staal, Girardi, Sanguinetti, Del Zotto, Gilroy, and “insert veteran here” someday

    Love this kid and the fact the Rangers signed him, but I hate to have a negative spin…what’s this gonna do to the cap going forward?
