No, I'm hoping McIlrath brings something we haven't had in years. A nasty physical presence who will make opponents think twice before skating into our zone on his side of the ice. A guy who will make opponents pay the price for getting to close to our goalie. I really like Sauer. I always have. But I don't know that he's capable of becoming that kind of player. To me the Freight Train from Winnipeg was picked because he can become that difference maker. That's why he's the better prospect.
