not gonna repeat myself as ive already highlighted his issues. this kid is a long way away.

im feeling rather down about him today. the problems i see are more related to his actual skills and hockey sense- its been poor at best. and that to me is a concern
And that's exactly why before Traverse City began many people were expecting Erixon to make the team out of camp, while thinking that McIlrath was still at least a year, more like two, away from competing for a spot on the big squad. All this tournament has done is cement those beliefs.
