As far as minutes munching first pairing defenseman, I understand J-Bo is a better skater and not physical what so ever.

Nice list of prospects. Garth's done a good job of restocking the cupboard.

Pretty fluffy and generic, but it's an HF list. I do like that we have quite a few guys close to the NHL team.

Other than the "Kichton to B'Port" part it seems pretty spot on.

And let's not make Edler out to be Brian Leetch either, Edler is a good offensive player but he isn't a league leading PP QB with a Bomb from the point (in fact Id say Reinharts shot is better).

I do like your Marc Staal comparison, but even Marc Staal skates better than Reinhart. The key to Reinhart and his potential is going to be his skating and speed. If he doesn't progress much, his game will not blossom as much as it could and might not reach Marc Staal/Alex Edler status in the NHL. BUT If he becomes just a decent skater, I think he is a better Marc Staal and a more intimidating Alex Edler.
I hope he pans into MArc Staal. Love that guy. I think he pans out more like Chris Phillips...I dont think he will ever be the skater Staal is.
