Question about McIlrath: do you think he is able to make this team next training camp? Sometimes that draft pick really has me scratching my head. Waiting 3+ years for a third pairing defensemen? I really don't get it...
Looking back over the 2010 draft in retrospect, Fowler and Tarasenko are the only two players picked later in the first round who have done much in the NHL.. http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/draft/nhl2010e.html

Tarasenko is off to a good start with 13 points in 18 games but beyond that, it's not looking like there are a lot of other players who would have been a better pick for the Rangers. Maybe 2010 just wasn't a super deep draft and the Rangers did make a good pick for a guy who fills a gap in the organization as a big, hulking defenseman.
