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.
Was just about to post something basically identical to this. He could play in the NHL this year, but long term I think it would be best to finish the year in the dub and play a year, maybe a year and a half in the AHL before stepping into the NHL.
