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.
The Islanders were willing (supposedly) to give up ALL their picks in the 2012 draft for Cbus 2nd overall.
