IIRC, Dylan is 2-3 years away from what the scouts say. Dorsett is pretty much it. Boyle doesn't know how to use his size. Pyatt is decent along boards, but is a lamb in the rest of his game. Haley is a maniac, and I do like him, but not sure how much ice he is seeing this year. Kreider has some snarl to his game, hoping to see more of it with increased ice time. Hopefully Ulf can bring something we don't see out of the blue line.
If McIlrath is 3 years away, he probably will never make it. Kid is 21 years old, and if he has a good half season or so in Hartford this year, I would expect him to be called up if there are any injuries in the top 6.
