You'll have to say the same thing to Ray Ferraro too because he pretty much said the same thing. It's ok to be skeptical on their views, but Mckenzie has been in this business for a long time so I'm not one to go against him. Especially since we haven't seen Rielly directly matched up against NHL skaters so we basically only have a reference point against juniors and we can see he is clearly above their level in skating.
