Fowler just wouldn't fit with the team, too many lefty shots. You could always just trade DelZaster and Staal, but McIlrath will be a good defender for the Rangers and is a righty shot. He is probably just as valuable to the Rangers as Fowler would be. Not that he is a better player, but McIlrath is a player the Rangers will need since the team only has two current righty shots.
The way fowler is playing this year, he would be the one making everyone outside of McD redundant. Not the other way around.
That being said, I still like the mcilrath pick ignoring hindsight and think he will be an asset. But here and now, we could have picked much better that day. Like every first round pick we make.
