People need to remember that most people, myself included, weren't exposed to Rielly as much as other prospects. Before the draft began, a lot of us went in with the idea that 1 of: Forsberg, Galchenyuk or Grigorenko would fall to us at the #5 spot or at the very least we'd be taking Murray if all the top ranked forwards were taken.

That paired with most of Leafs nation, again, myself included, drooling over the development of Gardiner, it was pretty easy to over look Reilly as a possible draft option.

How many fans of teams picking in the top 10 actually spent time reading or watching the few games Reilly got to play? I'm sure anyone picking outside the top 3 would be more than happy to have him once you read up/watch what he's capable of.

Also, he's better than Orr and Lidstrom combine AINEC.
