I guess it would've made more sense if I had said I still don't see what justified being picked so high. Lindholm, Rielly, Trouba, Dumba have all been more impressive this year. Yes I can see that he's a smart kid...physically dominant? Ehh. Still haven't seen it yet. Maybe I'm catching Oil King games on his off days or something, but he has a big body and what irks me about him is he doesn't use it for anything other than shielding the puck the way you expect a big board cycle forward to. That's not a bad thing, but I have yet to see him dominate in any way shape or form.

Morgan Rielly looks impressive. Good head on his shoulders.
