From 1994 to 2002
Reekie served as a
top four defender
. He was often
used against the other team's top players
because of his
strength and seemingly flawless defensive positioning
. He was
smart and tough,
although that brought inevitable injuries that slowed him. Regardless, he always played with a subtle savvy that I always admired, as well as [B]with a tough and physical, yet clean, presence...
...The highlight of Reekie's career came in 1998 when he
was a big part of the Capitals march into the Stanley Cup finals
. Unfortunately the Detroit Red Wings handled the Capitals to deny Reekie a Stanley Cup championship...
...every coach in the league wish they had a dependable defender like Joe Reekie on their blue line...
