In a couple of years, if all goes well, he could be a very strong NHL player. I hope he can raise the intensity as he matures, not looking for another Wishart.
Weird, I get the opposite opinion (just based on last night), to me, he looks slow, lumbering, easy to skate around, doesnt use his size (no physicality, uses his stick instead of hitting). Nothing he did last night impressed me, I'd be thrilled if he winds up being half as good as Pronger, no way is he more offensive than Pronger. To me, he reminds me of a thicker Ken Morrow, which is not a bad thing, but not worthy of a top 5 pick. This was based on last night, but I did mention during last years Memorial Cup, I wasn't impressed by Reinhart. On a side note, man did Samuelsson (Edmonton) look good last night. As did the speedy Curtis Lazar (Edmonton).
