Take a close look at any threads involving Reilly before and after the draft and how he is pumped up by the Leafs faith full.
If NYI had taken Reilly and Toronto had taken Reinhart the same type of attention and hype would be given to Reinhart.
No, it wouldn't be. If anything, people would be disappointed that we selected Reinhart. We already have enough defensemen like him in the system, or ones that play a similar style.
We didn't really have anyone like Morgan Rielly though. Rielly has elite offensive skill and is also good on the defensive side, he's a very smart player but also very exciting, kind of like Karlsson. While we have Gardiner, he doesn't possess the same hockey IQ that Rielly does and is more offensively focused, while Rielly brings the whole package.
