Great pick. My 3rd ranked WHLer. Might take a couple years, but you guys are going to love this kid.

Check out my report here:

Great pick for you guys. I know that you wanted the high end forward Forsberg or Grigs but Rielly has a ton of upside and a lot of character too. Worry about needs later, this kid is the goods.

Rielly looked so uncomfortable when Burke was saying how they don't let their draft picks wear hats.

And Burke smiled, holy ****!

I can't believe we passed on both Forsberg and Gigs. Terrible.

Sick pick.

We need an upgrade on D, not another winger.

Yeah I dunno, I like the player well enough but man is that blueline just ridiculously overstocked and not in a particularly good way either.

Not what I expected, but I'm not disappointed at all.

Good luck in Moose Jaw next year and hope to see Reilly in a Leafs jersey in a couple years.

W.e. lets hope Rielly turns out well. Tank next season draft Mackinnon. Gally will seem like he was never in our grasp in the first place

Only defender that I considered at 5 for the Leafs.

Skilled, offensive, excellent skater.

I wanted Galchenyuk or Reilly. I didn't see much to be amazed about with Forsberg or Grigorenko. Reilly has huge potential to be a dynamic player, he could easily be the best defenseman from this draft.

Reilly was my third option after Grigs and Forsberg, but I aint even mad. Welcome to the Leafs.

If Rielly was healthy this year he probably would have challenged for 2nd overall

If we were gonna pick a D, Rielly would`ve been my first choice over Murray and Reinhart even. I really wanted Forsberg or Grigorenko but I`m happy with this.
