How is McIlrath doing? How does his value compare to Skjei's? I ask because from a stylistic standpoint, we could use a physical d-man in the system more than another offensive guy, but i haven't really kept up with DM's development
He's developing well. His gap control has improved and he's making better reads and decisions with the puck. Should earn a spot on the roster next fall barring any major setbacks. His value is greater than Skjei not only because he's closer to being NHL ready, but because he brings a nasty presence to the blueline we've been missing for a long time. Skjei projects as a two-way second pairing guy. Great skater, with size and a big shot, but needs consistency.
