Sauer and Poti-quality should never be mentioned in the same sentence. Sauer already displays an understanding of how to play actual defense in the NHL, that it took Poti 10 years to begin to figure out. Sauer also has an edge and mean streak, something Poti has very rarely ever exhibited.

Sauer is establishing himself as a legitimate NHL defenseman, something McIlrath is not even close to showing yet. At the moment, until he can show that he will anything more than a potential top 4 D-man, which Sauer is on his way to doing right now, I do not see McIlrath topping out at a higher end than Sauer.
