I disagree wholeheartedly. McIlrath has all the tools to be a very effective 2nd pairing shutdown D. He's also solid enough at rushing the puck, as well as making outlet passes that he could end up in the 20-30 point range a few years in his career. I think he could be a bigger Barret Jackman type who might get 2nd pairing minutes, but will produce a little more offensively.
