The progress he's shown in a month is just phenomenal. If he keeps this up, he'll be in the NHL soon.

If you watched today's game without knowing who's playing and you were asked who's the #10 overall pick on the ice, you'd point out McIlrath. The team is allowing him to acclimate to the pros right now, but he should be in the NHL real soon if he doesn't regress.
Thanks for the updates my man, I haven't seen much of the whale since the lockout ended. Have a few questions for you if you don't mind.

- Have they found a steady partner for McIlrath in Vernace?

- How much PK time is he getting? How has he looked?

- How is he taking guys out along the boards? Hip checks? Clean shoulder hits? Is he still getting his elbows up? Has he landed a submarine special on any one yet?
