So its ok to punch the guy from behind the ref but not OK when the other guy is down. Ok, then...

Don't disagree with you but it seems to me the fight started when Walker sucker punched Reilly while he was being held by two Bronco players. Perhaps he was a touch up-set. What goes around, comes around.

definitely not top 5 in every category but did well in the bench and grip tests. I'm surprised actually I would have expected him near the top in a few of his leg tests and to be weaker up top but its actually the opposite

Oh please!! The ref was to the side and jumped in way to early. They shoudl have backed off and let it happen. There was nothing wrong with anything. The other guy wasn't really letting up either so Reilly just kept throwing 'em. I like a guy who fights cause he's pissed off and not just to fight to appease a crowd. This was a good ol' passion filled hockey fight where the emotions got the best of everyone. Good on everyone involved! That is why I like watching the young guns, it's still about hockey!!

You do realize that he had a major knee injury and could not work on his legs as he would have liked....

Still landed all his punches hiding behind the ref, but hey, that's just my perspective. The video was pretty crappy. He should stick to skating anyway

Precisely. Again, stick to your own prospects Newfy.

Production Update:

4GP - 1G, 3A, 4P

Had 2 assists in MJ's win over Brandon on Saturday.

Only think more stupid than arguing about Rielly's fighting ability is arguing about it with a Canadiens fan.

+1 for awesome unintentional comedy. This sounds like the ultimate compliment on a pimping message board. I won't be able to do this proper justice, but this demands a response something like:

Good to know he's a true playa who can make it rain with singles or hundy stacks. Some guys only practice with one denomination.

In the same time however, this could account on why is upper body was so strong.. He had more time tp work on it. However rielly is a gym rat so im not the slightest bit worried about his physical conditioning.

As for the fight, its hard to assess. Rielly got some dirty punches in at the end but walker sucker punched Rielly in the beginning, allowing him to have an advantage throughout the rest of the fight . I say walker won but I think this could have been a different animal had rielly been ready off the bat

Thanks for the update...I'd certainly appreciate updates and highlights of any highlight reel stuff...and of course observations from those lucky enough to see him play.

Adequate level of pugnacity. Although I worry how he will do in the NHL, you know with the leafs not needing any muscle or tough guys on the team. Morgan would have a short career.

Rielly's 6'1, 205 pounds and he's still just 18 years old.

I don't think of Morgan Rielly as a Ryan Murphy type smurf who will need protection. If he does encounter more injury trouble it will probably because of his reckless cavalier style of play, not because he's being pounded into the ground.

I think I heard somewhere around the draft that Rielly likes his weight at 200 lbs which isn't bad and he can keep his speed going.
At 18 years of age Rielly has comparable size and weight to these NHL defencemen according to their size last year.

Wideman
Bieksa
Yandle
Suter
Shattenkirk
Letang
Keith
Subban

If these guys can do alright in the NHL I'm sure Rielly's physique isn't going to slow him down from getting there. Not to mention he's still got a year or two to grow a bit and get even stronger.

I'd rather not see him try and translate that skill into the NHL.

What it does show me tho is that the kid is no shrinking violet.

Comforting to know we did not draft a coward.

I like the fact that he won't back down, that fight and in the last game he seemed pissed when Regina scored the 3rd goal. So before the announcement was over (24ish secs.) Riles goes and scores.

It's great to see him doing so well despite missing almost all of last year. He just continues to impress.

He really doesn't look that big. But i guess that is what he is at. I was guessing more along the lines of 5'11 180lb.

Yeah, I think he's 5'11, but on skates about 6'1 - 6'2.

The thing about Rielly is he's a serious physical specimen on top of being such a great skater with an elite skill level. Kid is a great athlete and very strong.

Rielly, Gardiner and Phaneuf in our top 4 is going to be pretty sweet if the two kids hit their upside.
