Start listening at the :30 mark

Never says with the #1 overall pick. You honestly think that they wouldn't have traded down to draft Reinhart if that was the case???

Defintiely not as a #3 on a playoff caliber team with a better defense, MAYBE a #4 in that situation. As a Ranger fan I agree that he doesn't suck, but I think you're overrating him quite a bit here.

There are some teams where he might not even crack the top-6. LA, when healthy. Nashville. Rangers, if Sauer was healthy. San Jose.

Not trying to bash him, but I do think you're overrating him quite a bit. He's a very good borderline #4-#5 that's playing well as a #2-#3 in his situation. Just like Rozsival in his time with the Rangers, solid #3-#4 guy that was playing as a #1 due to lack of depth on defense.
