Quite frankly it was Murray and then everyone else. Reinhardt was projected to be the 4th dman taken. Likely expected to be drafted in the 7-10 range.
While you can compare Murray to dd you can't really compare rein to pie.
Murray was never projected to be a number one defensemen, he was drafted so high because he was the safest pick to reach the NHL in the shortest amount of time, kind of like how Doughty/Bagosian were drafted second and third overall, but unlike Doughty, Murray looks more like a number 2/3 defensemen. Reinhart, as said before, is a much more offensively gifted defensemen that still may have needed a little seasoning before making the jump to the pro-league, much like Pietrangelo's situation, again, his situation, I don't think anyone is comparing Reinhart to Lidstrom v2.
