I'm not sure if anyone brought this up, but...

Douglas Murray (33 yr old / 3rd pairing / pending UFA) just got traded for a 2nd rounder and a conditional 2nd/3rd. He has gas left in the tank, but he's def not playing against your oppositions top players at this point.

I think this goes to show the value that big, physical, crease clearing defenseman have. If McIlrath can become a 2nd pairing defenseman with those types of attributes then that shows what type of value he potentially has. These players are absolutely coveted around the league, so I'm very happy that we may have our own.

**Please no Tarasenko/Fowler/Gormely talk - I am merely commenting on McIlraths potential attributes and value.**
