Rielly was actually measured closer to 6'1" at the combine. It's not a stretch that he'll grow at least half an inch. Being a 6'1" defenseman is fine. Especially with his hockey IQ and skating.
Also I don't know what you are saying about the whole "sure thing" stuff because numerous people including Bob Mckenzie and Brian Burke think that he could step into the NHL right away. Unless you're arguing that Rielly's (average) size puts a cap on just how good he can be.... Well then that's not very smart either.
