We have speculated prior to the draft on whether we should draft a defenceman or Center, in the end we went with BPA. We know Rielly was deemed BPA for the entire draft by our guys. Anyway it will be an interesting look into the Leafs mindset. I'm pretty sure I get how Mo thinks from what people who know him have told me. So maybe we would have gone Dumba if Rielly was picked before our turn or we would have dropped down and picked Washington's Forsberg/Wilson combo. Not sure anyone expected Forsberg to drop to 11, but Faksa was a good bet to be there.
Let's say the Islanders taken Rielly do you see the Leafs taking Maple Leafs Reinhart, because I still think the top 3 was Yakupov, Murrary, & Galchenyuk.
