Murray is the better d-man. He was very pivotal today, logged a ton of minutes and did a great job.
I'd agree. I think Rielly was easier to notice, and he was definitely the more dynamic of the two. Neither one of them are finished products, but I think Rielly is the less polished of the two and more of a raw talent in comparison to Murray. That's good news for Leaf fans, I think, because there is plenty of room for growth in his game.
Rielly made some mistakes. But I guess they were expecting more so offence from a Rielly-Pulock pairing. Murray was solid in his own end, didn't do much offensively for the most part in the 2nd and 3rd.
Im not so sure there are any. He plays the offensive game similar to Karlsson and his defensive game reminds me of Niedermeyer. I guess Coffey would be the best style comparison. (Again this is simply style comparison, ill cry with joy if he becomes as good as any of these 3)
