Reinhart, Trouba, or Ceci??

So if your a team picking somewhere around 7th or 8th overall, you need a D-man, and all three of Trouba, Reinhart and Ceci are on the board....... who's the pick??

Trouba. Highest upside of the 3, IMO.

1.) Trouba
2.) Reinhart
3.) Ceci

Both Trouba and Reinhart have top-2 potential.

This. I would add Matt Finn into the conversation before Ceci as well if he was one of the options.

I love Reinhart's poise, but his lack of physicality really bothers me because physicality seems to be one of those things where it's either there, or it's not... It's either in your DNA from an early age, or it will never be... Trouba plays physical and has offensive potential... Even if Reinhart's offensive game and puck moving ability is ahead of Trouba's now, I see a better chance of Trouba improving those parts of his game than Reinhart improving the physical part of his game........... Even with that said, I just don't know.... Too close to call...... Ceci seems to be the odd man out, but if you examine his game, he just may be the safest pick......

Trouba here but I'd rather have Dumba, Murray or Reilly than him also

I saw Kootenay play Edmonton once, and Max was making Griffen look ridiculous.

Being a Flames fan I obviously like the Reinhart's, but in my limited viewings I haven't seen the hype behind Griffen. Yeah he's big and poised, but so are a lot of guys on the second pairing. I just haven't seen top pairing potential from him in the times that I've seen him. There's nothing elite about his game that I've seen.

G. Reinhart definately did not lack physicality in his two playoff games at home against his brother. What bothered me was his foot speed. If that can improve then I see him developing into a very nice piece for an nhl franchise.

Haha, well that's one example. I've probably seen him play about 6-8 times in total. Once live when they played the Hitmen. And the only really special thing I ever noticed was his height.

Trouba is the most raw yet he has the highest ceiling.

Reinhart, besides having a nice mix of size and skill, has some nice intangibles, poise and big game performances.

As far as physical play he is very physical in tight along the boards and in front of the net. He's not a big open-ice hitter but he's not soft either. At the start of this season I didn't even notice him in games, he's not flashy or super fast or anything but he also wasn't getting beat wide or making defensive zone mistakes.

Then as the season went on I started to pay more attention and I can really see why his top ten ranking is warranted. For guys his age, size, and position he has very good mobility and speed, he is above average offensively and has really turned it up in that area as of late and has actually probably moved up for a lot of scouts because of it. He's very solid defensively and is a safe pick with decent offensive upside.

Ceci safest, most versatile, lower upside, may be ready to step in now

Trouba most upside, but very raw and may never reach his potential

Reinhart IMHO the most likely to be the best of the three, but it will take 5 years.

I'm looking forward to reading this thread in 5 years. It could be a good one like the Ruutu vs. Staal ones.

Trouba
Ceci
Reinhart

Reinhart is too much of a project for my tastes. He could easily become the best of the three, but he's probably the furthest out from that potential. Of course, Trouba is my #4 ranked defenseman...

If he's truly healthy, I would pick Rielly. Rielly could become, in the best case scenario, a #1 defenceman. Not sure Trouba can be one.

definately trouba and reinhart...i live in ottawa and make it to quite a few 67s games.. It blows my mind that people have ceci in the top 10..I feel like he is more of a 2nd rounder and that the team who ends up taking him if he doesnt fall will be very disappointed.

he seems very slow, disoriented and always seems nervous anytime the puck is on his stick

Dude has probably seen Reinhart play more than the vast majority of people who opine about him on HFBoards.

I think the Flames would have an obligation to take him purely because I feel that teams should follow the Pokemon rule in drafting siblings.

I'm guessing you mean it will take 5 yrs for Reinhart to reach his potential?

Scouts are saying he should be nhl ready, in 2 more yrs.

ETA:

2 years

Reinhart could step in and play at the NHL level soon, but if he's going to reach the absolute ceiling of potential some people have him pegged at, he's going to need a lot of time, development and seasoning at the CHL and AHL level to develop his offensive game.

Trouba.

He already has the polished two-way game, he is already physical in his own zone.

Ceci is big, but lacks the intensity.

Reinhart is still 'raw'.

I'd take Trouba, I even think some teams would look to him before Dumba and Reilly.

Before Rielly, I can see. They seem to be on the same "tier" right now. I can only see teams liking him before Dumba if they're rather low on Dumba though.
