I don't think the Oilers are worried much right now about how Reinhart's season is going. There is still a lot of hockey to be played, both for the Oilers and Reinhart. The Oilers don't know where they are drafting and Reinhart is all over the first round projections right now.
All that being said, I think the Oilers are looking for a real burner on the back end, because like you said they already have Marincin and Gernat in the bank, along with Musil and Klefbom. I think they will only take Reinhart if he is the best defenseman/player on the board. Reinhart's play has been pretty uneven so far this year, I think the scouts are looking for more out of him.
