I feel like Reinhart is a bit lumbering right now, and could
improve in a few areas of his game (mobility & puck control). However, if he puts it all together... watch out. He has that big frame, and is awesome defensively, if he adds muscle and works on his deficiencies he will be a STUD
Right now I think Hampus is the more well-rounded, polished defenseman with quite the upside but I think Griff has the edge on the defensive side. He obviosly lacks in mobility and offensive skills compared to Hampus but if Griff can improve in those areas I think he can be a top 5 five defenseman in the league for many many years.
