Could you give us a brief description of each player's strengths/weaknesses and what kind of role do you think each would fill in the nhl?
No problemo...as far as their strengths and weaknesses, since i have only seen them once each (except Dumba, i saw him last year as well, but was paying attention mainly to RNH), so it is tough to judge each player from just one game, but from what i saw, my impressions were...
Murray - saw him first, he was pretty steady and calm, good passes, played both sides of the point (not just when he was covering for a line change, he would switch every once in a while). The only negative thing that i can think of off hand is that you dont really notice him that much out there unless you're specifically watching him.
Reinhart - looked good out there with Gernat (made me drool at the thought of those twin towers on our blue line)...between the 2 of them, they take up a lot of room...Reinhart has a bomb for a shot (he got off a few against us). Didnt throw his weight around too much, but he's a good skater...i was kind of distracted during the game by a former co-worker that i ended up sitting with during the game, so i missed some of the game because of it, but from what i saw, he looked good (like i said before, if you live in Edmonton, go watch that team, they are going to make a run at the Mem Cup this year IMO. You probably have a much better idea about GR than i do IATL since you have seen him quite a bit live.
Dumba - This was the guy i was really excited to see after seeing that hit he made at centre ice where he absolutely hammered the other player, then got challenged and promptly handed that guy his a**. I think (like i said before) that he wasnt really playing his normal style due to his team being down to 4 or 5 dmen, which i believe made him play more conservatively than normal. But he has incredible endurance, can play both sides (like Murray), he's an RHD, has a pretty distinct skating style and you can definitely see the offensive creativity in him. I guess the negative would be defensively (he isnt bad, just young still, that part will come around with time i'm sure).
Still a tough choice (and thats not even including Grigorenko, Reilly and the other top dmen that we cant see in the west like Ceci, Pouliot, Koekkoek, Trouba), i dont envy Stu at all.
