Iíve been following the WJC really closely for the last five years and I canít really recall a defenseman on a U.S. team that has the offensive skill-set of Reilly. Thereís speed, thereís puck skills, thereís the shot. Now Reilly has a few deficiencies in his own zone, but to have a weapon like him on the back end has got to be nice, especially for Phil Housley who was known to freelance a little bit himself."

Not to be a pessimist, but I'm going to be one anyway. Let's say he tears it up at the WJC and plays really well at Minnesota, I wonder if we could have a Schultz situation on our hands. Reilly is not signed to an ELC, and he's a 4th-round pick, we hold his rights until he decides to leave college, but it makes me wonder.
