McIlrath is not a safe pick. To say so is to simply be delusional. Same with Kreider. I have no idea how you can say both were safe picks with a straight face. And then try and make up reasons why!

And to say that Thomas was a safe pick is, again, laughable.

I have no idea where you are coming up with this stuff. You are analyzing this stuff in hindsight. You can't analyze a picks risk in hindsight.

About half of your argument was that they could end up AHLers, yet you say those were safe picks? Uhh what, safe picks are picks that get you an NHL depth player instead of taking a potential top six forward or top four d man with some flaws.

Okay I see your argument. Apologies.
