FWIW, Although he has the numbers of an NHL body, he still has some filling out to do. While I don't think he will make the team this year (training camp performance can always prove me wrong), I would rather see him spend some time with Staal, and Girardi with MDZ. Reunite Staal and Girardi for high offense teams, but otherwise spread the good defensemen around a bit. MDZ needs a good defensive partner, not Eminger/Gilroy/rookie.

Staal - Girardi 15 Minutes a Game
Staal - Mcilrath 10 minutes a game
MDZ - Girardi 10 minutes a game
MCD - Sauer 20 minutes a game
MDZ - Mcilrath 5 minutes a game

Staal - 25 Minutes, Girardi - 25 Minutes, MCD - 20, Sauer 20, MDZ 15, McI 15

A ROUGH time breakdown like that (pk and pp would obviously be different) would be the ideal situation for both MDZ and Mcilrath to thrive in. But i still don't think Mcilrath makes the team.
