Was told by @dylan_mcilrath that even though he's at least a couple weeks away from skating "I feel really great"..looks in tremendous shape

…got to love hearing this. Lots of Rangers fans on the fence with McIlrath. I've heard some call him a bust, while others think he's the tough, punishing defenseman that the Rangers have been lacking since Beukeboom's departure.
…i agree with those who feel he has a great future ahead of him with the Rangers. Does he still have a lot to work on? Sure. But learning under Beukeboom and yes, Wade Redden should expedite his development into physically dominating defenseman. Every skeptic will fall in love with him the first time he destroys the guy who dares give Lundqvist a snow shower.
