Not to say that Rielly isn't great as well...he is. However at this point he isn't as good as Murray and he gets overrated because he is an offensive defenseman who is a great skater. He reminds me of Brian Campbell a bit with his electric skating, great passing, good offensive hockey sense, mediocre defense and awful shot.
He was better than Murray in the first game. All Murray did was do the soft chip off the glass and out repeatedly. He didnt do anything on the offensive side and turned the puck over a couple times. Even on TSN radio Bob McKenzie said Rielly looked like the best player on the ice in the first game.
