Wilson is the only one of the bunch that I think could earn an NHL deal.

sad part is that McIlrath would probably have been a massively dominant d-man prior to the lockout.

Then the rule changes marginalized stay at home d-men a bit.

Now it seems the NHL may further reduce the role of hammer throwing d-men that play rough.

It's worrisome that the NHL that McIlrath might enter, may be massively different then the one he was conceptually drafted to play in.

Was thinking the same exact thing today. By the time he's ready for Broadway there will likely be a 2 minute minor in place for "hitting too hard."

But it does lose us a compensation pick if something goes horribly wrong. I'm interested in why management was so interested in signing him this early.


Maybe Rangers feel he's alot closer than people think.

I could see him heading back to MJ for 1 more go and then making the team following year.

Correct. He's not eligible for AHL next season.

McIlrath discussed the signing today. This has been in the works since Christmas. He got some signing bonus money.

Many of us don't pronounce that second R anyway, so it's almost a proper phonetic pronunciation for New Yorkers.

Considering his work ethic, I wouldnt put anything passed this kid. He was pretty much in NYC training all last summer after the draft. When his season is done, I would imagine he will take a short amount of time off and then get his ass to NY to do the same thing. He was decent in Traverse City. He was good in Training Camp. He was very good in the one pre-season game he was in against the Albany Devils.

As I have said before, and as Surf so kindly mentioned, I'm sure the Rangers know why they signed him, i'm just interested to find out why that is as it makes little sense to me.

Zipay said the kid wasn't likely to compete for a spot next year, and the Wolfpack are hardly Calder cup contenders. Hard to explain.
Why not? Teams sign first round draft picks all the time with little intention of putting them right in the line-up. Get all your ducks in a row.

This is common practice.

There's no way in hell McI makes this team next season. We've already seen problems bringing MdZ up too quick. Sit him in the juniors for a year, then the AHL for a year or two, and let him develop properly.

Has to earn that nickname. I'm not ready to name him after the Phenom just yet.

I agree it's unlikely he makes the team next year, but defensive defenseman are a completely different breed then offensive. The emergence of Staal, Sauer, Girardi and McDonagh in their rookie years indicate McIlrath could surprise as well.

DM is neither the age or talent of any of those names listed if he were to play as a rookie next season, plus I don't think prior emerging players indicates anything.

I give him 5% chance of making the team next year based on the makeup of the D going into '12 and what I've seen this year from DM.

Let him learn, thankfully we have the depth for him to do so. I wonder if they'll have patience and not be tempted to fast track his size though.

It's not that there is an age limit in the AHL, it's that players drafted out of the CHL must either play in the CHL or the NHL until they are 20, or until they have played 4 years in the CHL.

Anisimov and Grachev both played in the AHL at 19. Ryan Bourque could have played in the AHL this year, had he been ready for it. Christian Thomas, on the other hand, can not play in the AHL next year because he was drafted out of the OHL and he'll only be 19 next year with 3 years of playing in the CHL.

Basically, it comes down to whereever they were playing at the time they were drafted. Thomas was playing in the OHL. Anisimov and Grachev were playing in Russia. Bourque was playing in the US. So Thomas is the only one of the 4 subject to the rule.

I say play him one year in the AHL with a late season call-up.

If there is ever a great time for McIlrath to play here, it's now. Too many guys around to take the pressure off of him and he can find a role.

Can you imagine a meaner version of Girardi with a harder shot? Pair him up with Staal and we might be impressed quicker than expected.

^^^^In 2012-13 sure(think he's eligible then), now hell no. Not to mention he's not even eligible.

And with all the youth we have on defense now would he the worst time for him to develop in our system.

No kidding, I can't believe the amount of people complaining about this. "Wahhhhh compensatory picks!"

You people will argue about anything...if the Rangers won the cup you'd probably argue they didn't deserve it.

That's a guarantee.

You guys are worried about the 1/1,000,000 chance that something tragic can occur?
