David Reinbacher may have been nervous, tired or embarrassed during our interview. He’s only human.
But many of you have asked me how my discussion with him went, and I must be transparent: he really didn’t convince me.

Simon “Le Snake” Boisvert made another intense statement. At this point, most field hockey fans know him. He recently appeared on a special draft edition of the Drette su’l tape podcast with David Beaucage and Charles Pellerin.
This time, he discussed an NHL defense prospect: David Reinbacher.
In his opinion, Reinbacher, at 18, would be better than Kaiden Guhle at the same age.
That’s not such a crazy statement.
As for David Reinbacher, he amassed 22 points in 46 games in Switzerland’s top league. That’s a lot fewer points, to be sure, but he’s playing in a professional league with guys older than him. So he certainly has more field hockey experience than Guhle at the same age.
If you compare the league and their point totals, it all comes out pretty similar. However, Reinbacher could be a top-10 draft pick, even if he doesn’t think so.
But Kent Hughes has said it many times before: he’ll select the best player available, whatever the position. Following this logic, Reinbacher should not be the Canadiens’ choice.
We’re more likely to see Kent Hughes select a forward, but the Habs’ GM has become accustomed to surprises at the draft. We’ll have the answer to our questions on June 28, when the Canadiens announce their pick in Nashville.
– This guy is a robot.
Shohei Ohtani now has 15 games with at least 10 strikeouts since the start of last season, 4 more than anyone else in MLB in that span
HE HAS ALSO HIT 58 HOME RUNS IN THAT SPAN

– Let’s just say he didn’t help himself.
