This. He needs to be at least a legit top four defenseman. I wanted Tarasenko at the time and will be pissed if he becomes a star scorer, but I will be especially angry if McIlrath doesn't become a very effective hockey player. Obviously, if McIlrath miraculously becomes a top-pairing defenseman then all will be forgiven.
