I can't get over just how much size the Rangers will have in about two years. We are going to be incredibly hard to play against. I'm so happy with our future.

Kreider is no midget either.

McIlRath though is the type of guy to take things slow with. Don't even want to consider him for the NHL until he's 22-23. Defensemen usually take a bit longer, and throw in his size, along with the need to learn when and how to be physical, you are talking down the road.

No problem with that... If he becomes Brooks Orpik then we have soemthing extremely useful.

Wow. Kreider isn't a small guy - 6'2", 200lbs. McIlrath is a monster.

Good to hear about Pashnin.

Haha, Pashnin clearly trying to win over Rangers management.

The guy gets in the favor of Sather enough and gets signed, maybe his name gets thrown into consideration with Valentenko, McDonagh, Sauer for the 6th dman spot.

Pashnin, I believe, is signed for another year with CSKA in Russia. He's allowed to come over here because his coach is Sergei Nemchinov.

Jesus McIlRath is huge!

There is no way he is 215 and Kreider is 200. One of those numbers is off, and i'm inclined to believe its McIlRath's number since Kreider is a pretty decent build himself.

To be fair, McIlrath seems to be using much larger pads than Kreider, and his jersey is immense. As a skill forward, I would suspect Kreider wears smaller pads than a hard-hitting defenseman. Underneath he may not be built much larger than Kreider. But yeah, he looks like a monster.

You figure he'll play at somewhere between 6'4"-6'6" / 240lbs. Pronger sized. McIlrath physics?

doesn't mean the numbers are off... Players can have different size frames, different body fat %'s, and different size equipment... Maybe McIlrath has larger shoulder pads and a broader chest?

Too difficult to determine their weights are off based on pictures of them with their equipment on...

I'm leaning towards bestowing my old Purinton nickname on McIlrath - The Ogre. He just needs a manly goatee.

One of the posters in the prospects section meant to call him a 'beast' but instead typed 'He's a BREAST!'.

They are both big guys.

McIlrath is just...bigger.

Found this clip from last years playoff between Calgary & Moose Jaw.

McIlrath nails a guy with nice hit at 1:30 in.

IDK man. I kind of like the sound of "The Undertaker" when refering to a Ranger.

The headlines alone would be priceless. And the psycological warfare is a tactic that hasnt been in the Rangers vocabulary since "The Stare !" from Mess.

Great find. Stevens-esque hit by coming across the blue line like that and just demolishing the guy. Let's hope he can do it at the NHL-level.

The Freight Train from Winnipeg worked in the WHL but I see The Undertaker sticking as the nickname in NY.

Here's to it.

Doubtless Loffen or Somebody is working on a nice McIlrath compilation for us.

If not...GET TO WORK

Clark said by the time the Rangers’ second-round pick came along at No. 40, the centers they liked, such as Brock Nelson, who went to the Islanders at No. 30 after the Islanders traded up for the last pick in the first round, and Nick Bjugstad were off the board.

You do not know how much this breaks my heart Realistically, did they think they'd really get him @ 40? I'm thinking trade up or trade down if McIlrath wasn't there.

classic.

with everyone so starved for hockey and drooling for any type information, a prospect camp scrimmage can make everyone freak out and all of a sudden things are looking up in rangerland.

its exciting when the young bucks get together for the first time and wear the jerseys but the odds of any of those guy making the team out of camp this season is not very good.

even guys like grachev, werek and stepan wont make enough of an impact to make the team. im hoping one of them might, but its unlikely.

the future might look bright but reality says were gonna get toasted this season with the lineup we have unless something dramatic happens between 7/1 and oct.

until then, enjoy the yutes

Pretty sure you are correct. The people saying they hope he has a chance at the 6th D spot will be disappointed. He'll be back in the KHL for at least 1 more season.

I've never felt Grachev's skating was ever poor.

But is it just me or does it look like he is faster and just technically better going into camp this year?

This kid is going to have a big year.

I's so excited about Stepan, Kreider, and Grachev.
