The talent of the players on the list is undeniable, but the absence of Rielly raised eyebrows.

Sure, Rielly might not have had a standout season last year, but his overall contributions on the ice shouldn't be downplayed. He deserves more credit than he gets from fans and the media. Rielly is known for stepping up his game in high-stakes situations, consistently making an impact when it matters most. Just look at his performance in the last playoffs - he racked up an impressive 12 points in 11 games.
