Would you say these goals look similar?

For the record, I'm not making any implied references or comparisons. I just found this eerily similar except for the obvious league difference.

I don't think they're similar at all. Crosby show incredible balance against Girardi?! and cutting to the net. Rielly's backend is cool tough.

Well Rielly was getting hooked so he was a bit off balanced too. But the way they split D is so similar. When I first saw Rielly do that I couldn't remember why it looked so familiar. I just realized it today.

From what I've seen, I'd take Rielly, but it's reallyyy close. I find Rielly is elite in a few areas(skating and handling the puck, etc.), while Dougie is just really good at everything. Dougie will probably be more dependable and consistent, but Rielly is more of a gamebreaker. I'd like to see how they perform at the WJCs to have a real feel for how they project as pros.

Rielly is explosive on defence, you thought Gardiner can skate, well he can but Rielly has a bit of agility and very mobile with the puck, a better stick handler than Gardiner, obviously.

This poll will be different as the year goes on when people see more of Rielly. Really good player who may be considered a steal at #5 last draft, especially when you consider Murray and Reinhart were picked before him.

I think Dougie has a lot of gamebreaking ability, but I think he'll be reined in due to how Julien coaches. I thought a great example of him being a gamebreaker was in Canada's loss to Russia last year. They were down by 5 goals, so Canada went into desperation mode and sent Dougie out a lot more than usual, and really let him go all-out offensively. The result was him taking over the game and Canada nearly tying it up. Obviously it wasn't just Hamilton that got them back into it, but I think he was the main catalyst.

Tough call.

Im pretty sure Hamilton will be the better overall defencman. Rielly has a chance at being a better offensive defenceman...maybe.

Come to think of it I change my vote. Hamilton.

I've seen Rielly play a lot more than I have seen Hamilton, but still I think this Rielly kid is special. There's no situation he can't escape from, he's like Houdini. I know Toronto fans are and should be drooling over having this guy play for the Leafs for the next 15 years or so.

Rielly actually played better than Hamilton in the Subway and Canada/Russia series from this summer/fall for those that saw these tournaments.

Right now Hamilton only has the developmental edge, but Rielly should close the gap this season, he missed almost an entire year last year and is just starting to hit his stride. This is a heady projection, but I see a lot of Brian Leetch in Rielly.

Bingo. You nailed it IMO. I thought this the first time I saw him play. Leetch 2.0.

And yet, you are a lowly fan who probably knows next to nothing about Rielly and Button has been watching him since he was 16 and is hired to be the official NHL scout of TSN. He was prolly laughing at you too while receiving a cheque from TSN.

But I get it, we can just forget about Button's scouting and just go with your ignorant skepticism

#3 compared to #16

And yes, Button's rankings are a joke. Show me more than one person's rankings that have Rielly ahead of Hamilton.

So you honestly think Rielly deserves to jump past Yakupov and the other 2 players selected before him just this past june because of a good half season? Not to mention other players like Huberdeau

His half season isn't even more impressive than everyone elses. Sure he had a hot start but nothing deserving of jumping over Hamilton, Huberdeau, Yakupov, Galchenyuk and Murray.

That ranking was done before the season started... Rielly's stock has risen a lot since then. It's pretty unfair to Rielly to just go by those rankings alone when Rielly has been wowing everyone this season. Hamilton was ranked 15th following his draft, these kinda things change. Especially with top prospects, there isn't a ton separating them.

Umm, I think it has more to do than half a season. It's about the fact that Rielly's injury didn't hinder his progression. It's about his tools and his assets. It's about his potential. This half season stats wise hasn't been too impressive. It's about the tools that may prove to be very valuable at the NHL level.

I don't fully agree with that list, but I do believe that list is in the realm of possibility. And only sceptics who haven't seen Rielly play can refute that based solely on the fact that it looks unlikely. I haven't seen much of Rielly so I can't honestly say that the list is correct, but neither can you disprove it. Button is the only one who has enough access to see these prospects, so whatever you do or say can't change that fact.
