And on Trouba...don't rely on USHL stats to gauge a player's offensive game. The numbers there tend to be lower for defensemen in general. He's got great offensive instincts and talents.
I don't rely solely on numbers when judging any player. The numbers are only part of the equation and they don't always tell the entire story. Trouba is better defensively than Reinhart. Reinhart has better offensive upside than Trouba does, but that doesn't mean he reaches it. This year there are a lot of offensively talented d-men.
