Honestly, when you have Brandon Dubinsky as your sole NHLer in a deal it seems obvious that you get a great prospect. I don't see Mcilrath being a great prospect. If it were Erixon, that's a different story.

Edit: Forgot about Thomas. Still is he considered a great prospect? Maybe great is too much, but how about very good? I'm just not that high on McIlrath, for all we know he's another Dale Purinton.
