He had maybe two good periods of hockey.
He still has loads of skill and showed flashes of his skating and puck moving. He has a lot of work to do tho.
You were ripping on him the entire time though. Even in the Slovakia game, I remember you going on about how he was playing poorly, then as soon as he turned the game around you quieted down. No offense, but you seem pretty damn biased. Of course, I have some homer in me too, but I'm not going to say he had a great tournament by any means, no one on Canada really did.
"Okay" is probably the best way to describe how he played. Spott ruined his confidence too by constantly benching him. Rielly's one of those D who you gotta give the reigns to a bit and ample opportunity to have him succeed.
