They are pretty comparable. I think Rielly is a little more dependable is his own zone, a little thicker frame and a better stick in his own zone. Murphy has a better shot. Problem that Rielly has is Moose Jaw doesn't have a lot of players that think the game at high speed like he does. Moose Jaw is filled with bigger players that like to bull stuff over, which creates room for him, but doesn't help him when the puck needs to get into the net. Moose Jaw is pretty much the WHL version of Nashville. Most of their best players are on the backend.
