I certainly think that Sanguinetti is further along in his development than McDonagh despite McDonagh having more upside. Sanguinetti has already played in the AHL for 2 full seasons and even played 5 NHL games. Also, Gilroy has the most NHL experience out of the 3 and although he probably has the smallest upside out of them he's probably got the best shot to make the team.

Of course, we may not sign a veteran defenseman and Redden may be sent down, but I don't see McDonagh jumping either Sanguinetti or Gilroy unless he's absolutely amazing in camp, and as we all know that doesn't necessarily translate to NHL success (looking at you, Gilroy).
Staal - MDZ
McD - Rozsival
Girardi - Gilroy

I can't imagine a draft day where we don't trade one of Rozsival or Girardi... more likely Rozsival, unless our pick of choice falls to us... And regardless I see one of them being traded just to get an extra pick.
