The kid's got unbelievable wheels and great vision while generally making good decisions. Has the potential to be a perennial 50 + point defenceman. At the time of the draft I was hoping for us to draft Forsberg but after watching the Canada-Russia series I'm very happy with the pick. Rielly will compete for a roster spot next season; some people in the organization think he was ready as early as this season:

Obviously he only played 18 games last year, so I'm glad he's going back to junior to get back to 100 % and continue to round out his game. Apparently he's been logging huge minutes for Moose Jaw(30 + minutes) in all situations which should be great for his development. I wish it was easier to find CHL streams.
