Mike Reilly — Dynamic. If there was one word I could use to describe Reilly, it’s that. He had a pair of assists today, including the beauty of a no-look feed off the end-to-end rush to put Gaudreau in a position to score. I’ve been following the WJC really closely for the last five years and I can’t really recall a defenseman on a U.S. team that has the offensive skill-set of Reilly. There’s speed, there’s puck skills, there’s 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.
And from the evaluation camp thread:

Gostisbehere
Murphy

McCabe


Grzelcyk
Haar
Seiloffrd
Welinski
Nice to see Reilly as a 3rd best d-man right after the two top-10 draft picks and in front of those other first rounders (including Columbus,OH native Connor Murphy).
