Of course it's a good thing. I just have a problem with him being compared to a 20+ goal/50 point guy.

So far it looks like he's even more offensively limited than Girgensons was earlier in the season.

Which is probably why they'd like to keep him in the AHL for the time being.

But then again that's exactly what I thought what would happen with Girgensons.

By, like, a mile. This is the best thing that's going to happen to the Sabres until Reinhart.

Creative. And yet one day later this has officially jumped the shark.


Don't expect Reinhart. He's not putting on a Buffalo sweater.



Low expectations. Low disappointment.

Of course I hope to be wrong ....

His team Corsi (meaning the number of successful Corsi actions when he's on the ice) is very good indeed. But so is D'Agostini's, *Adam's*, Girgensons's, etc.

If you mean that he's ready to be a 4th/3rd-line grinder, I guess most people would agree. But I don't think that's what you meant by comparing him to Hecht, who was a 50-60 point guy at his peak.
He starts ozone 40% and finishes ozone 50%... It's an very high rate and indicative of quality possession

Individual Corsi is silly

The term "grinder" is elementary and misleading

This has nothing to do with your post, but where did you get that avatar? It's perfect.
