My only concern with him now is that he needs to play more 'mean' as a guy who is 6'4. Isn't afraid to hit, but I would like to see him be more involved in gritty plays and in scrums. At one point he was challenged in a scrum and totally backed down.

Either way, he was very impressive on Sunday. He's currently 4th in my WHL rankings, but I could see him passing Morgan Rielly by the end of the year, mostly due to extra exposure.
I don't know if "mean" will ever be in his game. Reinhart is a very well rounded player but he won't impose his size on anyone. I don't think his strength is where it needs to be for a player his size which may be part of the problem. Its hard to say who he compares to. I liken him to a more offensive Eric Brewer.
