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.
Well said. I watched Rielly once last year and my eyes popped out of my head, and that was when he was 16. I'd be interested to see what he could do on a team like Portland. If he were only a bit more aggressive physically ( he's got the pounds ) he could challenge Murray for top defenseman in the dub.
