His offensive game isn't there yet, but that's minor details. Physically nature, smart, and good defensively. He's ready.
With only the #6 and #7 spots open, I doubt Reinhart makes the NYI this season. I think one of those spots goes to 22 yr olds Donovan or Ness, while the last spot will be taken by a vet Snow picks up after training camps end.
I think the isles would want 18/19 yr old Reinhart, to continue getting a lot of icetime. Not play #6 or #7 minutes.
