The thing I noticed most about Rielly, watching him on T.V. and live, is that he jumps into the play way too often. I'm a firm believer that the defenseman should only jump into a play to give his team an odd man rush, but Rielly plays like my Be a Pro defenseman on NHL13. That's great when you're playing a bunch of junior hockey players who haven't developed as fast, but if he thinks he can rely on his skating to cover his offensive risks in the NHL he is going to get butchered carrying the puck as much and as deep as he does. He will have to temper his enthusiasm with the puck, no doubt about it.
