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.
I've seen him play about 5 times and I was really impressed with his offensive vision and skating ability. What I disagree with what you said was that he actually needs to work on his positioning in the defensive zone.

He starts the season with the Leafs or he plays the full year in the WHL.
He can play with the Marlies at years end like Percy did this season.

Typical HF stats reader...
I'm sure you can come up with a concise argument that explains why Rielly is better than Murphy.

Very true.

IMO, Murphy will make the NHL due to his skating. Now, how effective he will be, that's completely up in the air.

Only if/when his WHL team is eliminated from the playoffs. In that situation he could also play with the Leafs if they were still playing.
