Rielly was the best player in the draft, so him.

Wow, these polls are ridiculous.

There's a large amount of Leaf fans on this board compared to other fanbases, so it really doesn't surprise me to see the Leafs prospect winning this poll.

for the record I think this poll will look silly in a couple of years, Rielly is going to be unreal. Truly wish the leafs didn't get him also don't think Gardiner is going that great.
Hes a proven NHLer. 75GP and 30PTS.

Also MPS had a sophomore slump so he was sent back to the AHL. Its not likes hes never gonna be in the NHL again. MPS could still end up being better than RNH.

Rielly. Gardiner is better now but Rielly has the potential to be a top pairing D man in 2-3 years, while Gardiner projects to be a top 4 D man. Rielly has a higher ceiling so easy choice for me.

Knowledgable NHL scouts have compared Rielly to Duncan Keith, Kris Letang or even Karlsson. Gardiner is good. I think Rielly will be even better.

Meh. I guess they could both end up being fine, but right now they make eachother redundant, neither projects to become a defensive stud. Burke has such a puzzling way to build his experiment.

Two players, one has been compared to Letang and the other a Niedemeyer-light (same style, not saying he will be anywhere near that good... but a very valuable skill-set)

It's easier to teach defense then offense, and both players are very fast/agile... Which makes it easier to make up for their current defensive deficiencies. Also offensive Dmen hold more value then defensive Dmen.

Rielly has a higher upside, but Gardiner is a safer bet (Even though I really like Rielly's chances). I'll go with Rielly, but am happy we don't have to choose.

I'm just saving up all my one-liners for these guys when the season finally starts:

-"A defenceman plays at both ends of the ice."

-"Sure, if you want a fourth forward."

-"A defenceman is supposed to play "defence"."

-"I'll take the guy who's trying to keep the puck out of the net."

-"I've seen Pee Wee d-men protect the front of the net better."

etc.

The ironing is going to be delicious.
