This isn't a very fair comparison. Kadri dangles to create time and space for himself, usually when he's already in the offensive zone, to make a play. Rielly on the other hand, is a rush player; everything he does, he does at speed because, as a defenseman, he has his entire defensive zone to gain steam. They play different styles and therefore use dekes to accomplish different things.
