Dated April, 2012 long before Rielly's potential was capped due to his ties with the Leafs organization:

Quote:
"I've seen Rielly do things on the ice that nobody else was doing," Central Scouting's B.J. MacDonald told NHL.com. "I saw him make those little passes to guys who weren't expecting the puck to get there. He's the type of player who can lead the rush and he'll be the first guy back. I think his creativity makes him one of the top players in the league.
Quote:
Rielly is the No. 2 defenseman on Central Scouting's final list, trailing only Everett Silvertips defenseman Ryan Murray.
Quote:
"Had he not been hurt, he probably would have challenged [Sarnia Sting right wing Nail Yakupov] for the No. 1 ranking," Central Scouting's Peter Sullivan said of Rielly.
Quote:
"He's got that [Bobby] Orr-ish quality about him. He can change the game in all areas of the ice, so I'm not surprised he stayed at No. 5 simply because of how good this kid is."
