I dont think it was that serious. I am sure if Hall, Seguin or Gudbranson were there they would've taken them. We have to remember that Johnansen, Niederiter, Burmistrov, Connoly all were gone. Most of the players left were either defensemen or Campbell(goalie).
I think it was more the case of the Rangers feeling that for their needs, they felt McIlrath was the best of the rest of the players left. I 100% believe they were hoping for one of those forwards above to fall and they didn't.
Obviously I have no proof of that, but just the feeling I get.
