I totally agree on both counts. Trouba looks to have the offensive upside that Reinhart lacks, that you'd think a team would require in a top 6-7 pick.

Hertl's numbers are ridiculous for an 18 year old in the Czech league, especially when compared to his adult teammates. I'm wondering if his ranking has suffered due to lack of agencies' scouting in the Czech Republic? I'm also doubtful that there were many Czech scouts surveyed for Bobby Mac's midseason rankings.
