    Has Rielly finally emerged as a legit #1D in the eyes of HF?

    Anyone voting no here either has some serious lack of hockey knowledge or a serious bias against the Leafs. There's nothing more the guy could do to prove he's a #1D at this point. Maybe you could argue against top 15, but a #1D? There's no debating that anymore.

    Likely a #1D, but his massively unsustainable onSH% has inflated his point totals and people's opinion of him.

    He has good, but unspectacular underlying metrics while playing easier minutes than a typical #1D.

    There are more than 15 #1 d-men in the league.

    So yes.

    He likely won't be a prime Keith/Doughty/Hedman tier because not many are, but if he keeps improving he will be in that OEL/Pitreangelo tier soon.

    Last year he faced 98th percentile QoC while playing with Ron Hainsey and put up excellent shot and expected goals numbers. He's been elite for a while.

    Because they are/ were better defensively by far and he has a long way to go.

    His QoC has been quite a bit lower so far this season.

    Yes. If you don't believe so you simply haven't watched him play for more than a few games, or are just being purposefully ignornant.

    If John Carlson is considered a number one than so is Morgan Reilly.

    Neither is in the top fifteen though imho.

    Still in the top 20 in QoC difficulty. Do you consider that soft?

    A little ironic haha.

    He's currently sitting at 113th in QoC CF% for defensemen with at least 100 minutes at 5v5 and has a significantly lower QoC xGF% than last season(Corsica sucks and won't sort by it to give you a ranking).

    LOL, if you're talking about minutes played look at QoC TOI%.

    For top 15 he’s borderline. For 1d overall I’d say yes.

    His current QoC metrics say he plays against players who play a lot(high TOI%), but who also aren't very good(low CF%/xGF%).

    Using cf qoc this early in a season is gonna give you some sample size issues. Matt Martin has a higher cf than Auston Matthews

    They've got nothing to hide I guess. They're either delusional or can't be taken seriously due to extreme irrational hatred for another team.

    He has 18 points already and is good defensively. He has a really good chance at leading defensemen in points this season and possibly winning the Norris.

    I don't disagree.

    I'm just saying I think there's people out there who are going to take those 16 points at face value instead of seeing the insanely high onSH%(11.5) and expect him to keep scoring at that rate.

    I would doubt that there's many posters over the age of 15 who think he'll score over 100 points.
