If it appears as if Reinhart can help bring our defense to the next level, I'd prefer him over Carkner, Hickey, or Finley.
Interesting thought. I don't see him being a future Visnovsky by any stretch of the imagination. I figure the team will have other veterans on board once Reinhart is ready to be a mainstay.

In short, I'd be shocked if Reinhart stays on the Island for more than a 9 game stay this fall.

Just too many blueliners ahead of him in the pecking order and in their development. Besides, as mentioned elsewhere, from what I've seen of him, I just don't feel he's there yet. I do not think he can help the NYI at the NHL level more than the 9 or 10 bodies ahead of him on the depth list.
