Not to be a negative nelly, but a bad pass in his own end, directly led to Michigan's only goal. The announcers were saying Russo may be pressing, because Ken Morrow was there as well as scouts for the American WJHC team, which Russo is trying really hard to make.
On the Michigan side, Jacob Trouba looked incredible. He's going to be a VERY special defenseman. This is not a dig at Reinhart, just being honest at what I saw with my own eyes. Trouba plays a fierce game, skates very well, will jump into the play, and plays a great defensive game as well.
What I saw of Reinhart, especially last night against the Russians was, EVERY key defensive situation, the WHL coach had Reinhart out there. There was a Russian 5 on 3 pp, and Reinhart was a freaking rock out there, blocking shots, moving people out of the slot, playing a smart game with his stick and body. It was an exciting thing to watch, and I can understand why people are touting him. He may not be the most flashy defenseman from the 2012 draft, but hey, Rod Langway won a Norris Trophy once, and was not known as an offensive defenseman, I'll take something similar. To me though, Reinhart reminds me of a thicker Ken Morrow, certainly not a bad thing either.
