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.
Skating is supposed to be one of his strengths.
Yes, we all know the coach is to blame for Rielly getting torched on the GWG in the bronze medal game.
He fell flat after all the pre-tournament hype. He is doing well in the WHL though, playing on the smaller ice against other WHL clubs. It will be nice to see him playing against better players in the AHL.
Desjardins estimates that about 40% of the game is captured by Corsi analysis.
