I agree. Its not an absolute thats teams should go for the 'game breaker' over the 'safer' pick. Depends on where teams with their roster needs. Reilly was absolutely the right pick. But generally I go for the riskier/ high ceiling player. CBJ chose right to because they have been burned but those riskier picks. Murray is a steady player and you know what your getting. TML was burned by the "safer" pick (Schenn) on the other hand so Rielly makes sense. Also they have plenty of "safer" d prospects so they could afford to pick the riskier player
