Honestly my thoughts were you could do a bit better offensively speaking and with the defensive contributions it could allow him to slum it as an elite #3C but he'd certainly be fine as a #2. This is sorta how I ranked Datsyuk in the ATD even though he's clearly better than a #3.
I would need to know a lot more about Reay's defensie ability to think of him as anything more than merely responsible.
