I wouldn't quite call that pessimism more like paranoia. The Schultz and Wheeler mentality comes along so infrequently that it honestly shouldn't even come to mind. I remember when people were accusing Matt Calvert of holding out on us because he wanted to play in the Memorial Cup in his hometown, and we all know what actually happened afterward. I expect Reilly to be no different than 99% of prospects as far as commitment goes.
