Yeah, as it should be with most prospects. McIlrath is not ahead of schedule but he's not behind, either. From the moment he was picked Rangers management the rational members of the fanbase knew it was going to be a long time before we saw him at the NHL level. He'll battle for an NHL spot next training camp but certainly wouldn't be hurt by another few months or even a full year in the AHL. Maybe McIlrath doesn't turn into an NHL defenseman. Nobody is a lock. But we're not even close to the point where we can call him a failed pick and all indications are that he's right on schedule for where he was projected to be.
