im sorry but a guy like del zotto flatout skates in mudd but ryan mcdonough has great feet, really good wheels. neither are russian.

i love stralmans wheels and for a big man, staal gets around pretty good. again, not russians.

good try though
Just a friendly dig. My 18-20 range for Zadorov wasn't too far off either.

McIlrath isn't going to be confused with Moore or McDonagh when it comes to skating ability, but for a guy who is growing into a 6'5 frame, his skating is well above average. In fact, I'd say his north/south skating is very similar to Staal's. However, his lateral movement still needs improvement. That, however, will come as he continues to fill out his frame.
