I forget who exactly said it during the draft (Bobby Mac, McGuire, Button), but I remember them saying that Reinhart could develop into the best player in the draft (or something to that extent). A 40+ point d-man who shuts down everything in his wake would qualify as a legit contender for the title of BPA. I hope they're right, but hyperbole's are thrown around like wildfire so you have to take it with a grain of salt.
I do have to say, 'FINALLY!' because it's been a long time since we've had a premium d-man prospect like him in a very long time.
Ya, it's always nice to have that elite potential D prospect.
I would have killed to have him stay in Edmonton, but it looks like we found a keeper in Schultz after the draft so not a bad consolation prize at least.
