NYI lockout riser and fallers

I agree with most of Dominik's comments, except for Reinhart. I don't see a reason for concern.
Lockout Stock: New York Islanders Risers and Fallers

Griffin Reinhart - Perhaps an unfair selection for this category, as Reinhart started off the year by being named Edmonton's captain. He's still playing quite well for the Oil Kings, but the disappointment comes in his offensive production (14 points in 31 games), which hasn't grown the way you'd hope.

That said, he's on a stacked blueline with a very strong top four, and none of them are lighting up the score sheet despite the coaching staff's plea for them to contribute more on that side of the ledger. Reinhart's doing fine; it's just a question of how fine an NHL defenseman he'll be.
