Tough call between Kreider and Stepan for me, however I love the maturation of Kreider from the beginning of his freshman season with BC, to his coming out party in the WJC, to his goal streak before the Frozen Four (and BC winning it all) and his play during the World Championships.
D-Step was a great Captain for the US in the WJC and his play was phenomenal in all situations. It's just that if I were a rival GM and had the ability to trade for any Rangers prospect, I'd aim for Kreider first.
talk to me in 5 years when fowlers a first pairing dman and mcilrath is battling for a roster position
battling for a roster position? he's going to be at worst a bottom pairing defenseman. even his biggest haters will admit to that.
like i said before, both the ducks and stars were going to take our guy over fowler. obviously his Charmin softness and maybe even some possible character issues scared teams off. but you keep thinking you're right.
and why the hate for mcilrath? he's everything (most, at least the intelligent and aware) ranger fans have craved for years. TOUGH, physical, crease-clearing and sticks up for teammates. i guess you were happy with girardi watching gabby have to fight or when no one reacted to drury's or AA's cheapshots to the head.
