I wanted Forsberg, but Reinhart was ranked #4 and Button called it (I'm not a fan of his, but he did call Strome the year before). Considering all factors, Reinhart was a very good pick AND he was pretty much the BPA at #4 according to McKenzie and Button. I know that the Draft is all about hyperbole, I did hear from one of those guys that big Griff could be the best player in the draft class when it's all said and done. I hope they are right and these guys are not Internet armchair GM's like all of us.
Thank you. You saved me from having to go back and search, for the final predraft rankings and comments.

I also remember reading that Edmonton wanted Reinhart and was considering trading down a few spots.
