If McIlrath turns into a top-4 tough, physical defenseman he is a good pick at #10. Anyone dissecting it further is playing the hindsight game or attempting to say "I told you so".
Hindsight does not apply here anyway. Everyone knew there were much more talented players on the board, we went with DM because of what happened in Philly that year. They saw their chance to get a legit tough guy and did it at the expense of the rest of the roster depth.

I told you so is for babies, my whole deal is with slats and company and holding them to their 'professional' moves. He's way past the point of benefit of the doubt.
