It's not really about confidence. It'd be a stupid move to rely on McIlrath being ready until he proves he is.

Probably not any better than emminger but a serviceable big dman with size,youth and sand as a #7 is a solid move IMO. Sheltered mins surrounded by excellent dmen might help his game as well.

By the way, Falk wore 44 in Minnesota. Like another certain depth dman who is a UFA this summer.

I wonder if Vigneault had a say here. Canucks and Wild have had a fight filled relationship the last few years, though I don't see any record of him fightingin the games vs the Nucks. He was -7 vs the Nucks over 3 seasons.

He's from Manitoba, same as Mcilrath.

Depends who you pick in the 6th.

Bravo, sir, bravo.

A guy who is a confirmed NHLer (even if he's the 15th - 20th guy on the squad) is absolutely worth a 6th.

#NYR assistant GM Jim Schoenfeld on Justin Falk: "He's a young guy who's improving. We think it's a real good fit."

More Schoenfeld on acquiring Falk for defense depth: "It's a first step. I don't know if you ever have too many."

#NYR assistant GM Jim Schoenfeld said he believes to make a good NHL playoff run, you need nine defensemen who are capable of playing.

Exactly how I feel about depth on D.

Rangers have 7 right now, possibly 8 if you include McIlrath. We should see one more depth-type guy brought in. Maybe re-signing Eminger.

found this info on him at

http://snyrangersblog.com/

Quote:
The Minnesota Wild have traded defenseman Justin Falk to the Rangers for Benn Ferrieo and a sixth round pick in 2014.

Falk, 24, is an RFA and coming off a deal that paid him $825,000.

The Hockey News says that Falk is a big defensive defenseman who plays a safe and steady game.

They note that he lacks consistency in the physical game and that he shouldn’t be expected to put up many points.

Michael Russo wrote in the Star Tribune that the Wild had been shopping Falk.

Doug Risebrough, a consultant for Glen Sather, was the GM in Minnesota when Falk was drafted.

Leslie Treff writes For those that asked, Falk is a big tough sixth or seventh d; worst case winds up in Hartford. Former fourth rounder. Probably good move …”
