Why is that?

Elite skating, IQ and vision. His defensive ability is also good, definitely not below average.

I'm not worried about Rielly at all.

All of our prospects that are in our system have one weakness or another that stops them from making the NHL right away.

Colborne...great size, but he's a humble giant, skating and decision making still needs to be better.

Kadri is has great playmaking skills but needs to tone down the dekes, stop playing NHL 12 and start playing NHL and skating/shot have also been a problem.

I don't see any of those glaring weaknesses in Rielly. The only way he'll find any weakness in his game is if he plays in the NHL and figures out what needs to be changed. He's just too smart and talented not to learn from his mistakes and adapt if needed.
