I don't necessarily think Spott wants Reinhart jumping up in the play.

I admit that Trouba has looked awesome, and he could very well end up being the better player, but this comparison doesn't really work IMO. Either way, regardless of how Trouba turns out I'm happy with Reinhart. Think he's going to be an NHL beast.
Completely different players. I'd say Reinhart is much more suited to NHL play than Trouba. Trouba won't be able to play this way in the NHL, against that level of play, not a chance. Ryan Murphy will face similar challenges, as will Morgan Rielly and even Dougie Hamilton.

Reinhart wasn't great today, he got beat a few times both off the rush and along the boards but he was good when he needed to be as well. The US team was pretty good, feisty, fast, they played Canada pretty tough too, just couldn't get enough going offensively.

As good as these guys look against Germany (and the lower teams), you can see how much tougher it is against better teams. Where was Galchenyuk today? Project to the NHL and the reality is, these guys aren't ready for that level of play, they have a ways to go, all of them.

I think Strome played very well, which is great to see.

Drouin looks like a player!

Trouba wouldn't even make Team Canada. Let's not fall in love with other prospects on the basis of a WJC game or tournament. He looked good, yes, but I think as an NHL defenseman his game needs to be much different.
