Blue Chip Prospect Autos - Morgan Rielly

I did the HOF thing, now it is time for a pile of pickups over the last while involving prospects. There are some kids that will possibly become HOF'ers and there are other kids that might become Alexander Svtovs. So enjoy the next batch of posts involving prospects!

Here is a little love out to Leaf Nation with a glimpse of what the future may look like: Here is former World Junior defenseman and Toronto Marlie Morgan Rielly.

Morgan Rielly is a more talented and reliable version of Jake Gardiner (in my humble opinion). What people won't disagree with is Morgan does have loads of talent at both ends of the ice and if he keeps developing the way he is, the Leafs may have more playoff appearances in their future thanks to his stellar play at both ends of the ice. His potential is as a top-2 defenceman and though he might never be a HOF'er, he could be a future NHL All-Star and Team Canada player.

Just for fun, I am going to give my amateur predictions* for Morgan Rielly:

Probability of making the NHL : 99%
Probability of being an NHL All-Star: 35%
Probability of being a HOF'er: 5%
Probability of making the Pyeongchang Olympics: 40%
Probability of making the Sochi Olympics: 1.6%
Probability of being the Greatest Maple Leaf Defenseman of All-Time: 0.4%
Probability of being better than Jeff Finger and Mike Komisarek Combined: 97%  

*These are based on my gut and brain, please don't gamble with these numbers because you will lose and lose big!


  1. I can't wait to see this guy in a Leafs sweater.

    Oh and by the way, the last probability number was close, but it should have read

  2. Haha Thanks :)

    He could be a pretty good steal from that draft and maybe a little more successful than Luke Schenn.
