I've seen more than just a few posters here directly comparing Rielly to hall-of-famers.
The most popular one is Leetch, followed by Coffey, then Orr. I've seen a few Bourques as well.
And then there's some posters that don't directly compare but are highly suggestive of it. As we see in this thread, apparently Morgan's "idol" is Bobby Orr. Why even say it unless you are hinting that he is modelling his game after the hall-of-famer?
Reminds me of the days when Schenn was an up and coming Weber-Foote-Stevens clone.
