I'll call your Karlsson, and raise you a Lidstrom. Karlsson is not the norm, and even so, we're still only looking at one amazing season from him so far. That being said, that one season is still a hell of a lot more than we've seen from Rielly so far, so any comparison between the two is premature.

Occupy is just saying that Rielly's flashy game is leading to him being overhyped a bit compared to other defensemen in his draft class who seem just as good, just less flashy. That flash doesn't make Rielly better, it just makes him easier to notice.
