Once he is able to recognize and breakdown plays, the rest should be pretty easy for him. He has a ton of talent, just needs to be tweaked and educated on the finer points of playing defense.

I think Murray will likely be the first player gone from the Dub, but I'll venture a guess and say Reinhart will go 2nd from the Dub. 5-8, overall, is likely the range.
That's a fair estimate on his draft range, I think. His stock may rise above Murray's, if he has a great year ... which may very well happen.

I haven't seen Reinhart play but I'll try to catch his games this season.
I think their skating is similar, having seen alot of both of them. Cowen was actually a very highly touted skater prior to his knee injury, and really started to show that off again this past season as the knee got stronger. Cowen's offense also gets underrated at times, one thing people have to remember is that his scouting report coming into the WHL was that he was a strong offensive player that needed defensive work - something he prided himself on improving. With Reinhart, I do think there is more offensive upside there, but on the contrary, I think his defensive game gets underrated; we have to remember that he played for a pretty weak Edmonton team this past year.

He's really a solid player all around. I don't think he'll dominate in any one area, but he certainly looks more than capable of playing nearly any role he's needed to.
