I saw Reway play more than 20 times live..and there were games when he never passed the puck. Too his credit, and Ben Groulx, by the playoffs he was starting to figure that out..that it's easier to get scoring chances from the give and go than it is by trying to deke five players.
There is no doubt he has talent though - more than once he DID deke through every player on the other team...he has some moves and quickness that few junior players have, and he'll only get better playing under Groulx. He came a long way this past season.
Reports on him last summer were that he was a chain smoking orphan with bad habits and a bad attitude - but Groulx is getting him turned around, and he thinks Reway will be playing in the NHL by age 21.
I can't wait to see what this kid does next year. Thanks for the update, Grant.
