Liles is a really good skater. Rielly maybe more dynamic in his initial strides, but I don't think he's that much higher than Liles in skating. I'd say what sets Rielly apart is his decision-making on the powerplay, on the rush as well as his vision.

Take my opinion with some skepticism with my limited viewings but my opinion is prolly no better than the guy who said he looks like Liles, but one thing I noticed is when Rielly has the puck, even when he is moving full speed, he is thinking about all his options and is dissecting the play. It's like despite the speed he's moving at, the play is going just slow enough for him to make the right decision with the puck, whether its passing for a give and go or taking it up by himself..

Liles hasn't really shown that, atleast not for the past year I've seen him. But skating and getting up in the rush is somewhat similar
