Voted Hamilton, very close.
In regards to IQ I can only speak for Hamilton as I've seen him a fair amount more than Rielly.
Last year whenever I watched him he seemed to have good IQ in terms of defensive positioning but didn't always make the play. IE he'd make a good read on a player that's open, but didn't always take away the passing lane.
Rielly is a lot better defensively than he gets credit for, smart reads and good stick. Hamilton's still better though. I just think Hamilton needs some Julien coaching to take his defense to the next level.
Also I found it funny some people think Hamilton is more dynamic. Every Rielly game turns into a highlight reel.
