I'll admit I suffered from tunnel vision, praying we drafted a forward. Since we've drafted Rielly, I cannot wait until he's up with the big club. His potential is sky-high, although I'm trying to keep my expectation into perspective, however Rielly is making that very tough with the start he's had with Moose Jaw so far this season. I haven't been this excited for a Toronto-based prospect since Araujo for the Raps

Definitely considering buying his jersey when he's up with the Leafs
You're not the only one. I'm usually spot on in assessment, but I gladly admit, and tip my hat to the Leafs brass and say, I was wrong.

Morgan Reilly really is looking like a player that could have been reasonably ranked as a club's number one player in that draft.

Compare, Gally, compare, Murray, Reinhart, etc...and Reilly is looking very, very good.

Lost in all of this is Finn...Anyone check out his progress thus far?

Oh yes, Leafs Nation...Finn in the 2nd was an absolute steal.
