The frustration here is logical. McIlrath's productive AHL time is probably done. It's time for him to be on the big club and contributing. We need some serious toughness, and a blue liner ready to replace Girardi. We needed to get McI through some growing pains and see what we have here. Instead we have Falk in the line-up, as if our chances are drastically increased with him.

Falk will probably make a mistake less per game than McI right now, and that's why AV has Falk in. Win now. What more was Dylan going to do in the AHL? Beat a few more players up? He needed to be here, and the staff needed to be evaluating if his NHL game was going to grow in his time here, or if he was a bust. Instead we have a staff that's desperate for wins right now. So instead of increasing his minutes gradually and working on his NHL confidence, they go back to Falk, who probably doesn't have a future here anyway, send McIlrath flown, and now he may have suffered a major injury. All in the name of win now to keep their jobs. The teM needed him, and his kind of game to blossom here, this really was his time.
