Yeah, there's no mean streak there and I doubt there's ever going to be.
To me, Reinhart is the nearest thing to a dead lock to be a top-4 NHL defender ... but he'll be the quiet type who plays 22-23 minutes, scores 25-30 points/season, isn't physical. Won't play in an All-Star game but will be a core player of a solid team. Like a Brewer or a Paul Martin.
I have him a lot closer to Murray and Dumba than most people do, I think.
