As far as standing up to the NHL I think dumba is the most athletic and durable, he has been playing 30 mins a game and plays a fast physical game and has held up very well, better than the other two so I don't see that as a concern. He will be 6 foot or better and over 200 pounds in the NHL.

Dumba will go before reinhart, Murray should too.
Good to see I was right here.

I was merely saying, that his skating will keep him a level below those guys, and he isn't the 2nd best prospect from the WHL IMO.
I stand by my statement that he is.

It's his biggest flaw. And it's not really a lack of intensity, it's more of just a small lack of physical play. He doesn't punish guys like he could with a 6'4 frame. He came on physically down the stretch this year, a big improvement, but it's still an area that needs work.
