It was a smart pick and a safe one. I know Morgan Reilly's been really good as well, has some good stats and highlight reel goals but Reinhart will not disappoint and might make the better pro defender. Solid pick!
He's gotten FAR better at playing the boards and taking the body. He started to do this a bit last year but this year (and I've only seen him play 4-5 times) he seems to be a different player. What I noticed most is his willingness/ability to take a hit to make a play. He used to be more of an off-the-rush playmaker with slick passing and stickhandling whereas now he seems to play more of an NHL-style game.
Nice progress from Stromer.
Agree,no question Strome has gotten stronger though as I posted above, he's not gained a lot of weight. Niagara site lists him at 6"1'192 so the size issue is not a concern since he'll naturally get
a little bigger and another off season working out with Tavaras' trainers.
