And for the people who are to lazy to watch his highlights on youtube (like me) I'll put it here.

Smokescreen.

Besides Linden called pointed out the draft-worthy defensemen in press conference #1.

canucks are in a desperate need for "smart hockey players" not just skilled... i hope they do get him. not another d man that will eventually ask for 5mill on his next contract!

Watch it. Coho was also one of these 'smart' hockey players.

If Ekblad is worth $5mil on his next contract... THAT'S GOOD!

I think Reinhart will be a better player than Horvat.

Our #6 & Tanev to Edm for their #3.

We get one of Rhino, Bennett, or Draisatl. A #3 would be ok.

He's a very smart player, from a good pedigree, and his stats in Jr. hockey back all of that up.

This player has received great mentoring from his family...and just like the Niedermayers, and the Staals...when Sam's NHL brothers get to free agency,...do you think it might cross their minds to reunite with their little bro for a hometown discount... if VAN happens to be going well? Well, I think ithat's crossed Mr. Benning's mind...and of course, there is the character of the Reinharts as a family,...it's been proven solid. They are all quality players from a quality family... who know what it takes to be PROs. They will avoid the nonsense off the ice & on it. With their dad a former NHLer...they are not known for being dirty-players either...and in a family-friendly market, that 's important to Trev and the organization, as well. Along with his preparedness, leadership & compete-level while demonstrating his skills on the ice,...loyalty, integrity & character...matter a lot, too.

The reason why Ekblad is ranked #1 is that Reinhart isn't quite there in terms of franchiseability.

Because Reinhart's draft year production is ins line with guys like: Hall, Tavares, Stamkos, Seguin, and MacKinnon. Point production in junior is the best predicator of NHL level success, and Reinhart's is by far the best out of all draft eligible forwards.

Reinhart projects to be a first line star. Something we`ll need just as much as a number 1 D-man, with Kesler on his way out, and Henrik getting closer to the end of his career.

I think we need a #1 D-man more than 1st line forward. 1st line forwards/stars can be aquired via trades or free agency, etc. However, #1 D-men are almost impossible to aquire via trades and are very rarely availble in free agency. Defense wins championships.

He's got the best ppg of anyone coming from the WHL ;)

The dub is a way harder league than the ohl or Quebec league. He proved he can be elite in the toughest jr league in the world. I think he's close if not already nhl ready. If he was playing out east he'd be hyped as a franchise player, Guaranteed.

I'd be willing to pay Jensen, the 6th and one of garrison/Edler/Stanton. Reinhart will be very Tavares like in a few years.

Read the part about a ppg in between Stamkos and Hall.

I think Reinhart will be a better player than Horvat.

Sam is more dynamic at this point.

They had great chemistry playing together in the world juniors, amazing passing plays ending with a nifty pass to an open McDavid who would miss the net or miss the puck or get stick checked by the goalie or knocked down by the D.

If Sam an Bo had a finisher or at least someone who would pass the puck back instead of staring it up...

We could have medaled.

Those 2 on a line with Shinkaruk or Fox could be deadly. All 4 guys can play centre as well.
