How is saying I think he is being a bit over-hyped a lack of impartiality? I haven't seen a lot of negativity surrounding Rielly(really, almost nothing at all), except by those saying some of the attention is getting ridiculous... but for some reason that seems to be some grave insult.

Letang and Keith might be possible, but keep in mind that Keith is a Norris-winner, and Letang is one of the best young defensemen in the league. At the same time, how many scoffed when Brian Campbell was mentioned?
Most Leaf fans were talking about the possibility of Rielly passing all other dman in that draft. Considering he went 5th overall while missing more than half the season, is that not a possibility? An objective person would say it is.

And Bobby Mac is suffering from the hype? How does a few comments on that constitute drinking the kool-aid, so to speak? Heaven forbid the Leafs actually grabbed a player that actually lives up to the hype so far.

Is that not possible? His skating looks incredible and the ability to jump in the play is fantastic.

What I want to know are the implications of a training camp invite for Rielly. Is that permissible on this Morgan Rielly-centric forum?

Should he make the cut, would the Leafs be obligated to keep him on the roster, or can they burn a year of his ELC and park him in the A if he needs time?

Some fans were offended at people suggesting hes comparable to Brian Campbell who is a number 1 dman that puts up around 50 points a year and isnt a defensive liability..

Difference is, Hamilton was the top OHL dman last year and absolutely tore the league up before Hamilton got the hype. Rielly was "better" than Murray after the summer series against Russia, after hes played about 40 junior games. Sample size is the difference.

And I know Rielly has number 1 offensive dman upside, but hes not exactly setting the world on fire this year offensively. I know his team is bad and everything but 21 points in 24 games doesnt deserve the hype of 72 points in 50 games and a good world junior last year.

Not all leaf fans are overhyping but if the only comparables that youre willing to accept are guys like Keith a norris winner and Letang one of the top young D in the league, youre setting expectation way too high and need to tone it down a bit

You can dodge the purpose of my post in reminding us all gently that typically defenseman stay in front of the net not behind it
However by your logic, no dman ever should join the rush.

Pretty good odd's that if Rielly had the surrounding players the Hamilton did last season he would have a hell of a lot more then 21 points.....

Because we are here to discuss players, not the fans who follow those players or the teams for which they play. That's why. If you want to discuss one another take it to PM. No one cares about the pissing match between fan bases, and no one cares about the "woe-is-unto-me" attitude displayed by some. Talk about the player, or leave. Those are the options. If anyone has a problem with that they need to PM me or another mod. Do not reply to this in the thread.

(And if that seemed harsh, it was directed towards everyone. I just quoted you, Finnish, because you asked the question. I think everyone needs the explanation at this point...)

You can talk about what he means to the future of the Leafs as an NHL team. That's entirely within bounds. As TMI said, and I said before, this is about Morgan Rielly the player and the Toronto Maple Leafs themselves. The fans as an entity do not need to enter in to the equation.

What's not within bounds is this non-Leaf fans using it to launch into "typical leafs fans overrating their own prospects to feel better about their team's future." or "If Rielly was on any other team, he wouldn't get the attention he does because it's all about placating Leaf fans." and Leaf fan responses of "people are only bashing Rielly because he's a Leaf prospect" and "typical HF, underrating a Leaf prospect because he's a Leaf prospect."

HF's flaming rules disallow attacking groups just the same as individuals. And that includes fanbases.

Yeah pretty good chance, but regardless he hasnt done it. For the hype hes gettng he should be putting up more points regardless of surroundings.

The what if game doesnt work. Dougie is just as responsible for his cast getting points as they are for him

This couldn't be further from the truth. The second he was drafted, "Franchise player" was touted. You're wrong.

Brett Ritchie and Ryan Strome are a far cry away from Sam Fioretti.

How good was Makarov in that game? I hear he's a pretty decent goaltender. Besides, with the offence the OHL usually has in these games, 2-1 doesn't seem like much of an offensive blowout either.

Hard to imagine Rielly not outscoring Hamilton in the NHL after 10 minutes of watching each play. Don't even need the stat sheet. None of this is written in stone.

Both have NHL tools but one has them in a combination much more likely to produce bigger numbers.

Well he was drafted by the leafs after all. This was to he expected. Started off okay after the draft but went downhill after people came in saying he was overhyped or just came in to start arguments then leaf fans argue back and it all causes a big mess.
