Too young for the AHL and not quite NHL-ready? The Toronto Maple Leafs face what could be a tough decision come the fall, regarding where to jam hot defensive prospect Morgan Rielly. In speaking with reporters -- including TSN's Mark Masters -- the Maple Leafs' director of player development admits Rielly may have outgrown junior hockey, while the AHL isn't yet an option for the 19-year-old (he doesn't turn 20 until March, 2014). So he may end up in the NHL by default.
