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.**
Well we used up an 11th overall pick for him so I sure hope he turns out to be worth at least 2 second rounders ...obviously hoping he turns out better then Murray.
