Thats ten pounds on Reinhart, I like the size and would consider/watch this guy.

With Nurse coming in, he will make an impact for toughness on D, we will have to upgrade the D some other way. With the Oilers wanting mobile D, we have lost size (smid, fistric) and can't handle the other teams big boys. I hope the Oilers realize we need one or two lumberjacks that take care of business.
Ray Ferraro was pretty down on Draisaitl in Germany's game against Canada this week, but I didn't think he was that bad. It's pretty tough for guys like that who are pretty much the only threat on a bad team to make an impact because the other team can pretty much put all of their focus on shutting that one guy down. I think Draisaitl would be an excellent pick, but I wouldn't take him over Ekblad or Reinhart. Probably not over Dal Colle either.
