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.
So Grigorenko, Forsberg, Radek Faksa, Girgensons, etc. are all as good as Yakupov? Yakupov is just flashier? Yakupov clearly has talent those others are missing. Same with Rielly. He is flashier, yes, but that's because of his talent level.
