Thus, he has been a bigger impact player than a player who has never played a game in the NHL.

Secondly, I bolded Tarasenko, because he would have been my preference and he was EXACTLY what this team needs.

I'm starting to believe McIlrath won't be in the NHL, period. What if he doesn't make it next season? You're going to go on 4-5 years without playing a game in the NHL? How many defense man drafted in the top-10 take 5 years to be NHL ready at an ENTRY level.
He's played in the NHL poorly. That doesn't mean ****. He was rushed and its clear as day to see why he dropped on draft day. Impact? The only impact he's had other than his first year has been negative. McIlrath is playing well in the AHL. Plan from the beginning of the season has been to bring him up around December. He's been a pro for a little over a year. He's exactly what this team is missing and people have been lamenting about. Drafting Taresenko over McIlrath isn't why this team is ****** right now.
