Rielly is extremely talented. All these comparisons he's getting are very reachable for him EVEN after his knee injury. He's a gym rat, always gives 110% and on top of that is naturally gifted.

His skating, his poise, his IQ and his effort is unreal. His offense is obviously top notch, but his defensive game is VERY underrated. When he pinches in (and he rarely ever pinches at the wrong times), he's somehow always the first one back on D.

I'm not going to say he's a lock to become like any of his comparisons (Letang, Orr, Leetch, Keith, Niedermayer), but if I was a betting man I would bet he becomes something special. IMO if he reaches his full potential, he would look more like a Niedermayer or a Leetch than a Letang/Keith. Again, not saying he's the next Niedermayer/Leetch (yet).
