im happy he looks bigger and more confident, thats what happens when you compare him year over year. thats good. he should be bigger and more confident and look better at a minimum.

but this minute by minute reporting....

''mcilrath with a huge shot from the point''
''mcilrath looks like hes faster''
''mcilrath with a nice play to break up a rush''
''mcilrath just took a crap''

this is getting silly. you guys did this last year too. then people start saying, based upon those tweets...'' ya know, im starting to like him more and more compared to draft day when i thought it was a mistake to draft him at 10''.

all based upon his individual shifts at rook camp.

from most accounts, he had a rather mediocre 2010-2011 season.

can we just chill a bit before we start measuring him for his rangers sweater....

Maybe there were more talented picks @ 10, but the Rangers picked McIlrath. He will be a Ranger one day, maybe a little support would help. I am sure that if his name was Mcilrov, you would support him.
By the way, one of the worst transactions in the Sather era was trading Korpikoski for the guy in your avatar. Talk about no hockey sense?
