I never said he doesn't have any offensive ability, but his offense is clearly not consistent based on his stats.

You ask me to stay on topic but then bring up the Subway Series which had nothing to do with what I was talking about. I am confident in what I'm saying because it's clearly backed up by facts, whereas all Leafs fans are saying is that I can't judge offensive ability by stats, which is ridiculous.
It has to do with consistency because I am arguing that consistency in terms of on-ice play and consistency in terms of offensive stats can be independent of each other (especially at this level where there can be such a wide range in skill levels). That is why I am showing you highlights of Rielly in a game where he is a constant offensive threat but has nothing on the stats sheet.

If Rielly plays this way for all of the games he's played in so far, despite the offense produced on the stats sheet which would come in time once the bounces go his way, he remains a consistent offensive threat.
