He got better as the game progressed, but had some shaky moments early on. Reilly and Ghostisbehere have both had their ups and downs, and none of them are too reliable defensively.
I think Reilly is better on the defensive end, nonetheless, but Ghostisbehere beats him out in the offensive department and breakouts.
Hopefully they see him as someone that can be used on the powerplay and the third pairing. But it'd definitely be awesome to once again have a Flyers' prospect playing in the tournament.
I kinda feel like you mixed up the names placement. Not that Im an expert but most have agreed that Reilly's defensive play is the worse on the team. He honestly doesnt play defense. That being said, he is dynamic offensively. Ghost is similar to Grz in regards to having both offensive ability and some defensive ability. I didnt get to see half the 2nd game, but most said that during the first game he played a great game, especially defensively. He was able to keep up skating wise with players like Karlsson.
Im by no means experts but the general consensus from those on the boards/Chris Peters is that Reilly has been horrendous defensively but better offensively than Ghost.
Also if Murphy is not hurt and he stays, I can bet they keep the McCabe-Murphy pairing together for shutdown abilities alone. I truely think Reilly will be gone. Both games he was easily the teams worse defender.
Im expecting them to go with:
