To be honest, every WHL defenseman drafted in the top 10 this year looked pretty irresponsible that game. Pouliot had no urgency and looked weak on the puck (leading to costly turnovers), Rielly was serving up passes down the middle onto opposition tape like it was going out of style, and Dumba was running around like a chicken with his head cut off.

I thought Reinhart fared a bit better, but he didn't have the sturdiest night either, getting exposed a few times by the Russian speed and skill.
