Sorry I had to laugh, because I just gave Leafs fans **** on the main board for their constant "revisionist history" re: Morgan Rielly and his injury.

Odds are he puts up a beast of a season, but if anything I think he would have just made Yakupov that much better as well and Yakupov would have still been the concensus #1 as a result. Gally probably being the concensus #2.. Slap him on a completely different team, but also with competent and skilled wingers? Maybe he could challenge Yakupov then... But I think he'd have just made Yak that much better.
