But if you compare the three, you arent getting any/much physicality from Murray. Dumba is the most physical, but people worry about his size and the ability to play that game in the nhl. Personally I dont think its much of an issue because Dumba brings so many other things to the table, namely his ability to carry the puck and attack the offensive zone.
Reinhart has the potential to stand up to the rigors of the nhl purely based on his frame. And despite the claims of some, he does use his size in puck battles, in front of the net, and along the boards. He does lay some pretty heavy/big hits too.
I agree with all of this. Well said.
