I agree with most of what you said. But RNH>Reinhart in terms of passing. While he's by no means a bad skater, his agility and ability to weave through traffic isn't on the level of RNH. This allows RNH to get into position to make more plays than Reinhart. Also, from what I've read, Reinhart's vision and hockey IQ are very high, but RNH's are better, which is another tool that indicates RNH is a better playmaker.

Both Reinhart and Ekblad are exactly what the Oilers need. I'd be happy with either with the way this season is going.
