Offensively, Rielly no doubt would have no trouble in the NHL. His passing and speed would be above the average NHLer.

Defensively I am a little worried though. His defensive IQ is fine, he reads plays well and is pretty good positionally. Most worried about his ability to win puck battles in the corners. He is at best average in junior in the dirty areas and he might be exposed playing against full-grown men like Rick Nash.

Ultimately we will have to see him play at least a game or two to see how well his style translates but I would be happy either way (WHL or NHL).
