I also like Jacobs skating a bit more.

I am going away out on a limb now but when I watched Reinhart play in the memorial cup i really really liked his skill set but I sensed he would disappoint me over the years by not using his size enough to punish the other teams stars.

Three things made me fall love with Trouba as a prospect this past year outside of his excellant fundamentals:

#1 watching him on the PP with team USA (U18 U20). He looked so slick on the power play and I think his O skills are being significantly under rated

#2 he has been a captain on many teams and in an interview he talked about "learning some leadership ideas from Tinordi" while playing for Team USA this year. he seems like he really wants to lead and that is rare and uncoachable at a young age.

#3 most importantly......when they asked him about running the goalie in Winnipeg and getting booed the rest of the game he said "well I got pushed into him" then he looked at the camera and winked and smiled!!!! Giddy up, that's my boy!!! heads up RNH, Eberle, Hall, and Nail
Hahaha. They won't know what hit them. But we will... "The Trouba Train"!! All aboard!!!

I think the Jets had him #4 above Reinhart, and the 2nd best dman in the draft. Reinhart is big, but not physical. Relies on his positioning. Trouba shows great positioning too, and plays the game very well. Jumps into the play, when he sees an opening - how else would he be able to run the goalie - and has a cannon of a shot.

Obviously, they didn't rate Forsberg or Grigs as high.
