obviously mcilrath gets a top spot...do connor allen and sam noreau also get spots? or will noreau end up in the echl?

I think Noreau starts in the ECHL. McIlrath, Klassen, Bickel, Johnson, Syvret, Folk and Allen will almost certainly be ahead of him, and that's 7 defensemen. Even if one of them disappoints, Noreau is still not in the top-6. He really needs to turn it up in preseason to win a spot in the AHL.

Noreau is probably better off starting on the first pairing in the ECHL anyway, unless he really impresses in the training camp.
