Pretty much polar opposites but considering a strictly defensive aspect, Murray is much better, however Riellys skill set allows him to be quite effective in that respect.
Thought Murray made a ton on mistakes last night while contributing nothing offensively. Never impressed when I see Murray play, although not much (WJC, World Championships,CAN/RUS summer series, and Subway Series). Defensively, he is average imo.
