David Reinbacher of the Montreal Canadiens. A Top-5 Pick in the 2023 NHL Draft Selection was offered to be traded to the Philadelphia Flyers last year during the draft selection. The offer was David Reinbacher for Cutter Gauthier of the Flyers. However, Montreal had shut down the deal and moved on with their top pick. For the Flyers, it could have possibly been a disastrous trade that would have haunted the management for a long time



Why is David Reinbacher being underrated by fans at an early start?

Due to the reason that he has not produced much with his respective club the NL Ice Data's Thibaud Chatel, however, his overall rating with the club is a positive sign of his growth. Adding on size and weight, with a new approach to his regimen. Reinbacher is showing promising signs of growing into a mature top-4 defenseman in the NHL. While working on his skating ability and making passes at certain areas of the ice. His physical presence will compare to a high-valued defenseman.


Another reason is because of Cutter Gauthier's success recently, Reinbacher is in the shadows of his counterpart and will have to adjust accordingly to his game in the NHL, which he is diligently doing with his respective club. He has a positive attitude and is determined to overcome the criticism from the media.
