There is no doubt that Morgan Rielly, the Toronto Maple Leafs 2012 first round draft pick, is by far one of their most promising prospects but there is one little issue that is making Rielly a little bit of a problem. That issue is his age. Rielly is 19-years-old which makes him Junior eligible which means he cannot play in the AHL for Toronto’s affiliate the Marlies, this amounts to him either remaining with his junior team this coming season or playing for the Leafs.
You may be saying well what’s the problem. The problem is he is too developed for the WHL but not developed enough to play in the NHL. The options after training camp are, send him back to the WHL where he won’t be challenged or rush him into the NHL where he could fall flat on his face (I’m not saying he will fall on his face, he is a talented kid, but it is a possibility).
