Development of Young D Makes McIlrath Pick Questionable

mcilrath3Larry Brooks at the New York Post wonders with the development of Michael Sauer and Ryan McDonagh if the Rangers are questioning their decision to pick Dylan McIlrath over Cam Fowler in the first round last year…

“The Rangers said they drafted the intimidating McIlrath (who by the way finished 53d in scoring among WHL defenseman this past season) because they had nobody like him.

Now it seems they have four other defensemen at least somewhat like him and, absent immediate expectations for Del Zotto, and no one like Fowler.”

…Fowler’s numbers last year were 10g, 30a and a -25, Del Zotto’s rookie year numbers were 9g, 28a and a -20. The Rangers would have drafted the same exact player they already have.

…sure the Rangers have a very sound top four with limited offensive ability, but not one of them strikes fear in any opponent. Which McIlrath will do the second he steps on the MSG ice making him the correct pick for the Rangers last season.
