This poll is preposterous. Not only is it way too early, you simply couldn't pick two defensive prospects with any more of opposing styles or qualities. Both have tremendous upside, but project to be very different players. Reinhart's size and physical gifts give him the potential to be a physically dominating shutdown defenseman with a booming shot. He has to become more assertive in the defensive zone and improve his skating and footwork, though. Lindholm elite skating ability and terrific hockey IQ give him the potential a termendous two-way defenseman who could excel on an aggressive, transittion offense team. However, it remains to be seen if he can shutdown top line NHL forwards and how well he'll fit into more conservative schemes.
