Now, we'll have to hear all summer how he's the greatest thing ever.
I'm a huge Morgan Rielly fan personally. I will openly admit that he is the one defenseman taken after Ryan Murray that might actually turn into a better player ... had he stayed healthy, things might have gone very differently for us at the draft. That being said, Morgan is an offensive guy, and Ryan Murray is a far better all around player. In my opinion, this makes him far more valuable to us in the long term, than Morgan Rielly would in the short term. There is still the chance that Rielly turns into another Kris Russell.

Reason? He should be healthy by then (might even play in the WHL playoffs, if the 'Tips are still around), and he played there last year.
