I love everything that dougie brings to the table; booming shot, crisp accurate passing, composure with the puck, great first pass. However he is prone to gettting blown passed and often unable to pivot fast enough for a top pairing defenseman. His defensive play (at times) shows why he was drafted 9th overal. Guy is chara/weber on the offensive side of the puck, just not there defensively.

Does that mean Rielly is better? Absolutely not. I just think Rielly is more of a sure thing to excell in the NHL. The speed is completely different in the NHL compared to junior.
