Murray looks like he's above this level. Guy's a flawless player, does everything well.

Reilly reminds me of Brian Leetch. I think he'll be a great NHLer, more boom than bust. He won't be able to get away with a lot what makes him spectacular in junior, that's for sure, it remains to be seen how he'll adjust his game. But you don't want a guy like Reilly to play conservative hockey, you want him to be a dynamic player who can create plays and you live with the occasional brain cramps.

Now, someone tell Randy Carlyle.

On Murray, at WORST he'll be a very good, reliable defenseman who will have a long career. I don't see anything outstanding about his game, on how it translates to the NHL anyway. But both these dmen have a long way to go before they approach their peak.
