Are we basing this on long term potential or readiness right now? I went McIlrath because of what he projects to be for this team long term, but I think Lindberg is more NHL ready right now.

It's based on the kid's value. Let's say you had to lose one of them, which one would it be? That would be the lesser value prospect.

Got it, in that case I'll stick with McI.

Lindberg, because he can skate without breaking a hip.

Lindy, he's close enough to bring it now.
Both have high upside potential.

SEL playoff MVP. Add Kristo.

That said, I think Mac's potential is as a first pair defenseman similar to Beukeboom, while Lindberg's is a second line center. Not saying they necessarily will reach that, but that is their ceiling.

The idea that a 21-year-old who can dominate the SEL has only a third line potential is ridiculous.
Zuccarello did that at 22, and was far from ready when he first came over.

McI is the better "prospect" while Lindberg is probably the better player at this point in time.

Went with McI

MZA is an exception. Lindberg is literally half a foot taller. That said, even MZA's potential is not that of a third liner. I believe he can and he will play on the top 2 lines.

McIlrath is far more important to this team than Lindberg.
