McIlrath Expected to Develop Slowly

mcilrath2Leslie Treff at the Hockey’s Future reports on the Rangers junior prospects including this on 2010 first round pick Dylan McIlrath…

“McIlrath is expected to develop slowly, and although the temptation is to evaluate him game-by-game, he will have ups and downs in his development toward the NHL. It is expected to be at least two more seasons before he will compete for an NHL roster spot.”

…i hope Rangers fans don’t look at what Cam Fowler is doing in Anaheim and get down on McIlrath. We knew from the very beginning that he was someone that was going to need time to develop.

Treff also looks at Ethan Werek (2nd – 2009), Christian Thomas (2nd – 2010) and Roman Horak (5th – 2009).
