Of course we can just pretend that didn't happen, or the coach sabotaged him.

Let's not get ahead of our Brendan Bells, CHL defenseman of the year discussions.
Oh come on, give me a break! Spott was TERRIBLE. He sabotaged the entire tourney, not just Rielly's game.

With that said, he didn't look as fast at the WJC because they played on a bigger ice surface. Dougie Hamilton's biggest downfall at the WJC was the fact that he looked terribly slow getting to the puck. He has somehow magically eradicated that "LAG" in his game while playing on a smaller ice surface in the NHL. Many people don't take that into account.
