Even then, you are making a ridiculous judgement based on one game. From all reports from people that watch him regularly say he is more than capable defensively. He isn't a Ryan Murphy clone. People should get that through their head.
I was judging from one game and I stated that in the second game he played bad, I havent seen that often to state a formal opinion of his defense. Scouting reports neither state hes bad nor excellent defensively, all state his has superior offensive skills. But it can be assumed from watching previous offensive defensman that often their style of play leads to odd man rushes the other way. Rielly has the ability to win a game from his offense, so why not pair him with a solid defensive guy to ensure no games are lost either
