One think is certain about McIlrath -- he wont be given a roster spot because of his draft status. At least not with this organization. While he made slight improvements during an injury-plagued season, he should be concerned with the both Sauer and Macdonagh pretty much guaranteed roster spots out of camp.

You also have to assume that Del Zotto will bounce back and be the 5th defenseman.

Considering how young the defense is, and how well Valentenko has played, you have to also assume that MacIlrath wont see NHL ice until 2013.

I guess they werent kidding when they said he was a project. But then again, almost all defensemen are when they are drafted.
