I can see Rielly being closer to being a Norris candidate than Gally is a first team NHL Center.

Anyone who disagrees with me, does Rielly have the potential of a Subban or Karlsson? Yes.

Does Gally have the potential to be as good as a Stamkos, Crosby, or Malkin? Not as clear, infact I am pretty sure no.

He's 19, and he missed a year his draft year. Why rush him and burn a year of eligibility? No one is hyping him, when most know Morgan is a very intelligent, skilled elite talent.

Only time will tell with him.

Habs fans are so easily riled up... relax.

I like Galchenyuk so I'd take that duo seeing as how the Leafs need a #1C. Gardiner fills the void left by Rielly in a sense.

Your telling me it was a mistake to keep the Calder finalist and Galchenyuk who was, 3rd if im not mistaken in even strength scoring on the team?

Don't flame me if I'm wrong, but I believe he finished 1st in ES scoring.

And it's Gally and Mac Attack for me, but it could be close in the future.

and Leafs fan aren't? Come on, what you expecting to happen when the two most rabid fan bases get pitted against each other in a battle of young players? All fans to come in the thread and be objective?

I'm saying he had an easier path to the NHL than Rielly.

Is it really that hard to understand Habs fans? Read my posts nice and slow. Love how many words are being put in my mouth here.

You can rest assure I have never wanted to draft Gally over Rielly. This is one Leafs fan you have pegged wrong.

When Rielly makes the Leafs roster, and I suspect it will be soon, I have a feeling Leafs fans will be happy too that we drafted Rielly, not Gally.

So it's easier to break into the lineup of the 2nd place team than the 5th place team?

i dont know what planet you live one but the habs aren't a 2nd place team and the leafs aren't a 5th place team. Dont forget you guys just got spanked by a 7th place team with injury problems. dont put to much emphasis on a 48 game schedule.

both teams will be lucky to make the playoffs next year.

as for the poll... i have it as 1c> 1d, so the montreal duo.

people here are so short minded that gally could have a sophomore slump and be terrible next year and rielly could tear it up and 90% of people would change there vote.

Sooooo put more emphasis on a 5 game sample instead of a 48 game sample?

Not short-sighted at all

I'm not saying we'll be a 2nd place team next year, but this year we were and Gally broke into our lineup and helped make us a 2nd place team.

If he was good enough for the NHL this year, why wasn't he?

Else, you are basing what he will end up to be on potential and potential alone.

Galchenyuk > Reilly

Because he was injury and not fully recovered, and its more beneficial for him to play 25+mins a game than be a healthy scratch or a #6 D-men for the leafs playing 12mins a game.

So you admit it - he would be a #6 on the Leafs D ( some prospect you got there )

Thanks for proving my point, Galchenyuk > Reilly

What is your point, who makes the NHL first? Or who will be the best player in 2 to 3 years time when most NHL GM's evaluate players.

Luke Schenn made the NHL at 18, Pietranangleo didn't. Who would you rather have right now?

Give the poor woman/man a break.

Also, and my heart is pure (no nasty intent), didn't Hamilton have the 5th amount of ice time per game on the Bruins this year?

Spitting in the wind...

My point is; Galchenyuk has produced at an NHL level as an 18 year old center.

Rielly has not been good enough to even get a shot at the NHL level yet, as an 18 year old.

The only argument for Rielly is potential, and potential isn't foretold in prophecies.

I'm not saying we'll be a 2nd place team next year, but this year we were and Gally broke into our lineup and helped make us a 2nd place team.
when the games actually meant something, you guys didnt play like a number 2 team.

and i dont dissagree about gally either. he's gonna be a great player and so will morgan reilly.

It's silly comparing a forward and a defenseman after only being drafted a year ago.
this subject and the gally vs reilly debate thread is going to pop up at least 5 times in the next three years before either player is in there prime and can be properly judged. thats the sad part. montreal is happy with there pick and im sure the leafs are happy with theres.

there's a select few fanbases that can say "we're the 2nd best team, or top 4 every year" etc etc and montreal is not one of them, at least not yet.
