"only"? that's a heck of a lot more impressive than scoring less than a point per game in the whl.
I would personally blame the amateur scouting on most of the Leafs deficiencies in terms of developing something elite. We're not drafting consistently in the first round, which means we don't get a lot of automatically blue chip guys, and then we waste time with Kenny Ryan and Jamie Devane picks when we should be going for more home run swings on players whose upside isn't useless plug.
the same amateur scouts who drafted rielly.
maybe he'll be a mega-star hall-of-famer who will lead many parades down yonge st., but you can't blame people for being skeptical and wanting to see a lot more before annointing him a star.
