Trouba.
Everyday of the week for me.

If scouts had seen the offensive side of his game before the draft there is no way he falls to us at 9. The book on Jacob was a safe, defense first Dman. Then he goes to the WJC and UM and shows that his offensive game is well above average. Will it translate? Who knows, but at this point I don't see why it wouldn't (Though UM plays a funky style).

At the time, I thought Reilly was a reach. Not cause he went to the Leafs, I just thought he was better suited to the 7-11 range to be drafted.

Either way, I'm happy the Leaf fans are happy with their player.
Both franchises seem happy.

I just know that if the Jets traded Trouba for Rielly straight up, I'd be furious.

i would love to see proof of this, from my viewings of the draft year ryan murray was quite a bit better than reilly was.

i was more impressed with murray last year, than reilly this year, and reilly was the best player on the ice every time i saw him this year.

the only person i heard reilly being number 1 ranked from was brian burke.

I like Rielly, but you embarrass the fanbase with posts like that. At no time did anyone say Rielly was a potential #1 except for idiot Burke so just stop.

This is a stupid poll because Trouba is turning out good. A better poll would be comparing Rielly to Reinhart and that poll would probably give out a more fair result.

Mmm. Both fanbases are incredibly happy with their picks. I know that I really like Trouba, and Leafs fans really like Reilly.

Trouba. Has a more diverse skillset, and was obviously the more dominant player at the WJC.

In saying that, we're only 1 year away from their draft, and neither have played in the NHL. So that could easily change in the near future.

I'd take Reilly.

Better offensive skillset, dynamic skater and elite passing and vision, and underrated defensive potential (similar to Karlsson).

Trouba is going to be a very good defenseman who excels at almost everything, reilly is just too dynamic for me to pass up.

I'd pick Trouba because of total package, but still too early to tell.

Trouba, the guy I was so afraid Burke would reach for at the draft...

I don't get your point? The poll is stupid because it favours Trouba, so instead the poll should be Rielly to Reinhart which clearly favours Rielly? That would "give out a fair result"?

Reilly has questionable descision making at times, Trouba seems more reliable.

I prefer the steady 2 way guy, versus the risky offensive oriented player.

Craig Button said it, actually. Not that I agree with him, but you are incorrect.

EDIT: no I was incorrect - http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1308155

Jacob Trouba, one of the top defensive prospects in the league.

I think it's too early to say who will be the better player in the long run. I really like Rielly's upside due to his great skating and skill-set. But at this point in their development, I think that Trouba has performed better at the higher levels of competition (WJHC, World Hockey Championships, NCAA). Although Rielly projects as a better offensive D-man, Trouba hasn't been a slouch. His goals-per-game were about 50% higher than Rielly's as an NCAA Freshman vs. CHL 3rd year player, and his PPG wasn't that far behind. It's a small sample size, but Trouba also scored at a much higher clip in the 2013 WJHC.

I would love to have Rielly in our prospect pool, but at this point I think the evidence suggests that Trouba is the better prospect.

this is Craig Button's final ranking for the 2012 draft
http://hfboards.hockeysfuture.com/sh....php?t=1206971

and if I remember well, Rielly was even further in his mock draft.

Whoops, my mistake I had it backwards. This is what I was thinking of, which was actually 5 months AFTER the draft:

Still had him #1 of the 2012 draft class.

In all fairness he's only rated so highly because of how much he improved over the last calendar year.

Voted 9th best prospect a couple months ago.

Took Rielly. His skill and much, much higher hockey IQ is what sets him aside from Trouba. Trouba is pretty dumb when it comes to decision making on the ice.

I see Rielly as a #1/2D, while Trouba will be more of a #3/4D

No doubt Rielly is a blue chip prospect, but I'd be surprised if Rielly is in his top 3 of 2012 now.

He has pretty ridiculous lists, so I wouldn't be surprised if he was.

I really like Rielly and still think be can become the better Dman. But I have to say Trouba is looking really good now it's VERY close..

I really hope Morgan Rielly can redeem last years absolute embarrassment of a WJR's. rustled jimmies wont go away
