I see why Rielly excels in tournaments and not so much in Moose Jaw. Moose Jaw has a team that is built on defense and physically dominating teams, while Rielly does his waterbug thing. There isn't enough of Rielly type of players on Moose Jaw to thrive like he could. He's kind of a round peg trying to fit in a square hole. I'll be interested to see if Moose Jaw acquires some speed and hands at the deadline to help Rielly out. Rielly is a pretty unique talent. Rielly actually would be a good pick for the Oilers as long as Gernat and Marincin keep developing like they are.
