2 franchise defensemen. Who are you taking going forward
Rielly for me, his skating/offensive ability, is the deal-breaker for me. Both top 15 d-men in the league however.
I like both a lot.
I like both but I think Reilly has the edge
Both fantastic and in the same tier. I keep Morgan, but wouldn't blame anyone for taking Slavin.
Rielly. Both are fantastic though
Neither of them are franchise defenseman, I take Rielly.
It's close, but Rielly.
I think it's clearly Rielly. I love Slavin but the difference offensively is too much compared to Slavin's defensive advantage.
Tough one i like Rielly but Slavin has been better so far if u exclude these 14 games. Its a small sample size but if he continues it over the year than its Rielly easily
rielly is great but I'll take slavin here, really tough choice.
Easily Rielly for me. That skating and offensive side he has is something Slavin really lacks.
Rielly. He has been working on his shot. His offensive instincts are elite and he is no plug in the D zone, such as Burns.
Slavin is amazing tho. Would love him being a part of any franchise I cheer for.
All due respect, it is no small sample size. Does he not have like 80 or 90 points in his last 130ish games ? Someone posted it somewhere. Regardless, can't go wrong with either.
Both great but Slavin is on a whole other level imo
Going forward Slavin no question.
Close but Slavin. The one sided poll results are mainly based on way more Leaf fans on here. Should be about 50/50. Anyone saying it’s not close hasn’t watched Slavin play.
What have you done for me lately?
Look. Slavin is a great shut down D-Man, is frustrating to play against, and looks like the next Vlasic, maybe hell be better but that remains to be seen.
Morgan Rielly is no slouch defensively, has size, and isnt afraid of using his body. AND puts up points (18 in 14 games) and is coming off a 52 point season. He really does look like the next Duncan Keith, again, maybe hell be better.
Slavin has also had MUCH better D-Partners (Pesce & Hamilton & even Faulk) so far in his career, while Rielly's best was Zaitsev.
Two great young D-Men. Im going Rielly here.
Have you seen Slavin's skating?
Have you seen Rielly's skating? They’re not even comparable as skaters.
How would you compare Reilly’s skating to Josi or Karlsson?
