Reinhart needs more time with that lanky body,work on his skating, ect. Would like to see him
grow in confidence and try to do more things next year, maybe not be afraid to too safe. He has enough instincts that the decisions he makes will be the right ones, he needs to trust himself more.
Hope that next season the improvement is clear to see like it is from Strome this year. Proof again
that everyone develops at a different rate.

Just my thoughts, could be dead wrong but wanted to say the above.
dead right. No one can dispute that a player is ready when they are ready.....only that some feel a player is ready when they tie their skates right and some wait til his overall game is solid.
