Back to Moose Jaw and then hopefully the Marlies next year.
He cant play for the marlies next year. It's NHL or Moose Jaw again.

He's probably going to get a call up sooner than later.

The Leafs are chock full of NHL calibre defensemen. He'll get called up later rather than sooner.

He can't be called up on anything more than an emergency basis for the next 2 years.
He starts the season with the Leafs or he plays the full year in the WHL.

But what about before then, isn't he eligible for the nine game call up? Are the Leafs deep enough?

You never know... We don't really have a PMD of his calibre on the team. On the PP, he could be the perfect partner for Dion. I doubt he makes it this year, but next? Who knows? If he impresses in camp, they'd be foolish not to let him play. Just like they were with Kadri.

That isn't foolish, it's deciding that the kid still has more to learn before being ready for the NHL. He could make the team next season, but if you have other players who are just as capable, why would you want to burn an ELC year?

Rielly has explosive written all over him. Rumour has it he tried to sign on with Roberts this year for his camp, but Roberts would like to see another year hard work before taking him under his wing next year. Can't wait to see the difference in Kadri this year, after having spent the entire summer training with Gary. If the leafs are smart, they'll pursue Roberts hard for a strength/conditioning development role. Guy plain has yet to fail making an impact on every player that's trained with him. Any organization that lands Gary Roberts in a player development role are blessed indeed.

Don't you think that he could probably have that job with 30 teams if he really wanted it?

Doubt Roberts wants that assignment. On his own he's able to choose who he wants to train. With an NHL team he's forced to train an entire group that would include players who may or may not want his assistance.

He can make the team out of camp and play up to 9 games before the Leafs burn a year of his ELC. But once he is sent to jr. he cant be called up unless it is on an emergency basis.

Yes, but I still think they should pursue him hard.

I was told he was with the Stars organization, which sucks if that is true.

If he wasn't with the Stars organization we are better off financially then most teams in this league and he has played for us before so we have the edge in that regards. We could overpay for his services to acquire him.

From an article dated March 31st (79th game)
Quote:
Defenceman Cody Franson was the odd man out on D for the Leafs, meaning Mike Komisarek drew back in after sitting the previous three. It was the 25th time Franson had been the healthy scratch (16 under Wilson, nine under Carlyle). Komisarek has sat three times under Carlyle and 13 under Wilson. He was also sidelined 21 games due to injury
http://slam.canoe.ca/Slam/Hockey/NHL...-19577036.html

Komisarek is gonna find a spot on this roster. Hopefully for only 13-14 minutes a night

I think Reilly has all the offensive potential in the world, but his Defense REALLY needs work. The good news for leaf fans is that you can teach defense, but you just can't teach the offensive instinct he has.

He also could have opened his facilities in any city in the world and chose near home in Toronto.

Rielly going 5th overall is a testament to how weak this draft was. In comparison, in 2011, a similar (and better) player in Ryan Murphy went 12th overall.

Both have insane potential.

I'm curious as to why these teams are signing the draft picks to the 3 year entry deals when from what it sounds like in the new CBA teams will be able to sign the draft picks to 5 year entry deals. Why wouldn't the GMs just wait until the new cba is signed.

I think the 5 years was the NHL's initial proposal full of all the things they would want in their wildest dreams? My guess is 5 year ELC will not happen. They will continue to remain at 3, go to 4 years tops. GMs may think it is not worth possibly making a top pick really upset for maybe 1 extra year. We also don't know what is being talked behind those closed doors. For all we know both sides have already agreed that the length will not increase and the owners have since whispered it to their GM.

I can't wait to hear how many games you have seen of these two players from NC.

Typical HF stats reader...

From what I have read and heard, Rielly has great hockey sense, good positioning and an active stick. The only knock on his defense that I have heard of is his lack of physicality. However, I haven't seen him so I cant confirm or deny this.

I dont know if murphy has more potential. He might be better offensively but rielly is about 2" taller and 15 pounds bigger (while being one year younger) and that might make his transition to the nhl easier... We will see anyways.
