You're right, our drafting hasn't been atrocious, but it seems like we always reach for a guy, then everyone goes, "****, good find, he's gonna be a stud," but then he winds up good but not that good. Stepan is different. Hagelin might be.
Maybe I'm way off-base with McIlrath. I see a big, tough guy who's pretty slow, with 0 puck skill, who is ok at D but made the same mistakes late in the season that he made earlier. Saw 4 or 5 Whale games. I'm a Rangers fan, not a Whale fan and I have a life! lol
He is big, not slow, he has some puck skills. He has a good outlet pass but keeps it simple, kind of ala Sauer. I would say the Rangers are probably looking at a meaner, bigger version of Mike Sauer.
