Is Matt Gilroy worth it?

to rangers fans, glen sather recently signed hobey baker winner, Matt Gilroy, for 2 years and for 3 million. I personally think that it was a great deal, hes 24, a fantastic offensive deffensman, a hobey baker winner, and had the assist with seventeen seconds left to tie the championship game agianst miami. I think it was a great deal and he will contribute a lot to the rangers, though i have heard that some people think hes being paid too much, what do you think?
ps- i forgot to mention to those who say where does he fit, it is a garuntee that the rangers are dropping mara or morris, that has been practically announced to the public

yes.

The Rangers took a gamble on Matt Gilroy. The Hobey Baker Award-winning defenseman received a one-way deal for two years, which translates to a guaranteed roster spot coming out of Boston University.

Obviously, that provision held the cost of the deal down to $1.75 million per year, a significant savings over the initial reported asking price of $3 million per year. It’s a fantastic deal for Gilroy because now he doesn’t have to play catch-up with any of the prospects in the Rangers’ system, such as highly-touted defenseman Bobby Sanguinetti or their first-round pick from last June, defenseman Michael Del Zotto. And the Rangers landed a player they obviously wanted at a reasonable price under the circumstances.

It was a great job by Gilroy’s agent, Kent Hughes, to assure his client of starting his career in the NHL.
