Pulock (24 gp - 9g - 16a - 25pts) has more points than Rielly (25gp - 4g - 18a - 22pts), so they both are relied on for their offense but they go about it differently. Pulock is more about passing and shooting and Rielly is more about using his skating to create opportunities - a puck possession type of player.
When I watched Pulock a comparable for me would me Schenn/Komisarek type.Has a hard shot but not smooth or has the ability to skate the puck or pass well.Gets most of points setup on PP.probably a poor comparison but was trying to think of someone who is not a great skater.Whereas Reilly would be more like a Karlsson who can skate the whole rink with the puck and organize the PP.
