Right now, I would have to agree, I would take Rielly over Murray and Yakupov also. That's not hyperbole or being a homer, it is simply the truth.
I am most happy the Habs took Gally, should be a great rivalry, but reports on his play have not been too impressive since the summer US camp. I hope to catch him play live so I can judge for myself.
I can't say I'd have passed on Yakupov or Galchenyuk...Rielly I like as much as anybody after those two comrades, certainly more than Reinhart and Murray.
