I wouldn't take it as a given they would have taken Reinhart. Let's remember that this is a team whose last 7 picks in the 3-10 range have been Johansen, Filatov, Voráček, Brassard, Brulé, Picard and Zherdev in the past 10 years. Johansen looks like he could be good and Voráček is starting to come along in Philly... other than that...
IMO, they would have been mental to trade down to anything even remotely more risky when that is their drafting pedigree.
