Stop coaching Pat and Andrew Gross were critiquing McIlrath's skating ability. McIlrath stayed out after the scrimmage for a 45 minute power skate with a few of the other players. Those 2 knuckleheads took it as a bad sign. Stick to finding out who will be the assistant coaches on twitter instead of evaluating players. McIlrath doesn't skate like McDonagh,Moore or Skjei. That is not his game.
Skjei's skating stride is effortless. It's all about just being comfortable to keep his feet moving. I'm still very high on him.

I think they sign him. They have a ton of contract spots and he can go back to juniors for a couple of seasons at least. He is a real project, but his skills are undeniable.
