totally does. Combination of being tall and skinny (no man-strength) and his skating needs work. He's pretty raw, even though he's a big body.

What I like about his game is how he keeps his head up all the time, especially defensively. As the Russians carry the puck in the zone, Reinhart is scanning the ice and seems to be in position to make a play all the time. He often opts for the safe play, the smart play. He uses his body well but seems to lack strength on his feet.

Contrast that to Ryan Murray who seems to have all his man-strength. Very low centre of gravity, seemingly solid lower body, kind of a bull-dog out there.
