Could he play in the NHL right now? Probably, he has the defensive game for it. Would he excel in the NHL? That's a different question.
But I don't see why he should be rushed along. I think this year and possibly another in the WHL would be great for his development and maybe even a year in the AHL after that.
I don't think defencemen should be rushed into the NHL. I'm not an Isles fan but I do like Reinhart and I think he'd be best served by playing out this year in the WHL, then spending 13-14 in the WHL, at least partially, and then start the AHL in 14-15 with the potential of being called up.
