This could be right.
Reinhart projects to be a top pairing defenseman who crunches a lot of minutes. His size, reach and skating could really serve him well in the NHL. The jury is still out on him offensively - he has a big shot but isn't a riverboat gambler in the mold of Reilly. He could end up a Weber, Seabrook, Bouwmeester, Carlson or a hybrid of any.
Reilly is a free-wheeling, offensive defenseman who loves to carry the mail and jump into the play. He also has a nice shot and crafty passing skills. In a points only format I would take Reilly over Reinhart any day of the week. This kid has the tools to be a high-end offensive D-Man if his game translates to the NHL like most suspect it will. Think Karlsson, Shattenkirk, Keith, Letang, Enstrom, Fowler, etc.
