I'd prefer McIlrath lead in Hartford, rather than sit at 7th.

I think Dylan would be fine as 7th D, brings a different element/change of pace which is what I'd want from my guys in the pressbox.

I don't think we're going to see a whole lot more development out of him if he's sent down.

Eh, I'd prefer Hunwick. Seasoned veteran who we know can play our style of game. Dylan would be fine here, sure, but he has more to learn from leading a squad than watching one.

I doubt we'll see mcIlrath as the 7th. It's Hunwick

Cash or Czech?

At this point, it's still about playing time for McIlrath. He's 22 until late April, so he's still a young kid. Defensemen take notoriously longer to develop than forwards. This would be his third AHL season which is entirely fine, IMO. Next year is really the make or break season to me and I have no quipes having him play 20 minutes a night in Hartford and then being called up if injuries make that necessary. He'd be much more prepared than being on the practice squad in NY.

When he didn't get a start in either of the last two it was pretty clear McIlrath won't be on the big club to start the season.

Also looks like Malone and Stempniak are top 13 forwards to for opening day.

Hopefully Lombardi gets claimed and that clears the contract to allow Duclair to stay.

Maybe the Islanders will give us some picks for Stempniak or Mueller
