With h/t to Moose Jaw announcer James Gallo for his apt nickname for defenseman Dylan McIlrath.
I have a new feature up on the baggage smasher over at the New England Hockey Journal website here.
McIlrath is a bit of a polarizing figure. Some folks don't think he has enough upside at 15, and others say hey- why not?
Don't know what the Bruins intent is, and until we see who is on the board at 15 (assuming they even still own that pick on the 25th), there's no reason to jump to conclusions.
What we do know: the kid can really fight. He's gotten a lot better as a hockey player. And, because the Bruins took the time to fly him into Boston last week and give him the red carpet treatment complete with Sox at Fenway outing, they're obviously interested in him.
Where that takes us on draft day remains to be seen.
