Also, speaking of Staal and the Carolinas. Random thought occurred to me today. If McIlrath is called up and plays in one of our games against the Canes, there's a distinct possibility we will see a game with our top picks from 2005, 2006, 2008, 2009, 2010 and 2011 on the ice. Every year except for last and Cherry.

I'd be surprised if it's not Girardi. A player like him tends to regress rather quickly simply because of the way he plays.
