I might give the slightest of edges to Reinhart because forwards are slightly more projectable and obviously he would look good in a #2C role (or even #1B eventually) but it's easy to envision Ekblad as being a huge help to this lineup in the future as well and if he becomes a big, solid dman chewing up 25+ minutes a night... that's truly invaluable and I'd have to say that's an even bigger need at this point going forward.
