I would even say he has more potential than Gardiner, or is that just my excitement speaking :p
I agree that Rielly has higher potential. People don't like that being thrown around because of how well Gardiner has already played at the NHL level, but Gardiner is also 4 years older than Rielly. I just can't wait until next season's training camp, because having one of these two on the ice at almost all times, with another full year of development under them, is going to be very exciting.
