Who would you take, and think hard about this:

Phil Kessel or Milan Lucic?

Or a recent trade that was made:

Cody Hodgson or Zack Kassian?

It's a legit question because I feel McIlrath can easily become a Lucic or Kassian on the Rangers defense. Not a top-pairing guy, but top-4 while bringing other things.

Kessel and Hodgson obviously being the more skilled players. Lucic and Kassian the more truculent.
Let me ask you this.. What info did STL have about Tarasenko that the NYR didn't, because they obviously felt he was coming over? they were right!

why draft a defenseman that's 5+ yrs away, top 4 pairing at best, when your last top scoring prospect passes away tragically?
