FYI, I don't know why Mark left it out of article, but GMJN did mentioned Reilly. It's in the video.
He was asked two similar questions, and Mark quoted the answer to the 2nd one.
Regarding Chiasson, I agree he does feel a very similar role as Smith. I think they're both future Top 6 players in the NHL. Smith is probably going to net more goals, but Chiasson is probably a better playmaker though. As far as a complete, two-way game, they were both extremely impressive in that regard in college, and I'd expect that's a key element of their game in the NHL.
I just watched the interview. Those two questions weren't even close to being similar, the one was very specific about players to watch. Plus, there was zero mention of Sceviour which tells me the video doesn't include the entire interview.
