The thing about Rielly is that its not only his dynamic skating that makes him special, it's his high hockey IQ and his creativity. He makes smart plays and he uses his skating to give him advantage to make the right/smart moves. Being dynamic and flashy is one thing, but Rielly has the ability to adapt and adjust to whatever type of game he is playing. He did it at the Ivan Hlinka tourny a year ago, he did it at the leaf prospect camp and he did it at the Canada/Russia series on the international ice. That's one of the reasons Hockey Canada is so high on him.

That type of hockey IQ is very easily transferable to any type of hockey league.
