There are not many Dmen that put PPG numbers especially if they bring more than just offense.
post draft season: Pietrangelo had 29pts in 36 games. Subban 46pts in 58GP
Reinharts a stay at home dman that didnt get a ton of PP time like Nurse has. Nurses skating and offensive abilty is also way better than Reinharts. Like I said obviously a PPG was an unrealistic expectation but he should easily exclipse that next year if he goes back.
