MORGAN RIELLY RUMORS

Nonis: Gunnarsson departure means Gardiner, Rielly need to step up

One of the curious trades made on Saturday involved the Toronto Maple Leafs. They dealt defenseman Carl Gunnarsson and the 90th overall pick to the St. Louis Blues for Roman Polak. While that deal netted the Leafs a physical blue liner, it also sent Dion Phaneuf‘s top-pairing partner out of town. That means there’s a spot next to the Leafs captain and a chance to play a lot...

How About Some Leafs Talk

from Mike Brophy of CBC, From this little corner of the hockey universe, I see only four players on the Maple Leafs who should be considered untouchables: Bernier, defencemen Morgan Rielly and Jake Gardiner and left-winger James van Riemsdyk. All others should be made available to allow Toronto to become a better defensive team that is willing to pay a price for victory...

Morgan Rielly Is NHL-Ready

from Damien Cox of the Toronto Star, With 10 days to the beginning of the 2013-14 NHL season, there’s still time left to evaluate whether Rielly, at 19, is ready for the NHL. But why wait? It’s pretty clear already he deserves to be on the team. For those familiar with this space, of course, this might come as a surprise, and there’s no question that this space...

Top-prospect Rielly in tough to crack Leafs roster

Morgan Rielly has looked through the numbers. You can bet the Toronto Maple Leafs have as well. “I’d be lying if I told you that I didn’t know what Capgeek was” Rielly said Saturday when asked whether he’s paid any attention to where he might fit on the NHL team’s depth chart. “I’ve checked.” The cold hard reality is that the odds are stacked against the 19-year...

Mike Augello: Rielly The Real Thing??

Leafs 2012 first rounder Morgan Rielly has been an impressive performer so far this season and is making GM Brian Burke look pretty good, as he selected the offensively gifted blueliner fifth overall in spite of him suffering a serious ACL tear last year.

Mike Augello: McKegg, Rielly Make Impressions at Prospect Camp; Franson Flummoxed

Impressions made by any of the 42 youngsters on the ice at the MasterCard Center may not translate to any success at the NHL level in the short term, but a few eyebrows were raised at Tuesday's Blue-And-White scrimmage in Etobicoke. Maple Leafs 2012 first-round pick Morgan Rielly got his first taste of action in a Leafs uniform and appeared tentative in the first of two 25...
