The Rangers also don't need a PP defenseman. If you look around the league you will find that many of the top PP's don't have a big shot from the point. See the Flyers. They are great on the PP and their defenseman stink.
That's what McIlrath is in theory. They're not going to **** around with his development and bring him up too early just because he's tough. The team has played Matt Gilroy and Stu Bickel and claimed Roman Hamrlik off of waivers; do you really think that happens if management believes McIlrath is NHL ready right now?
