That last bit is actually the main "problem" I have with Ekman-Larsson. He plays for a totally dominant team on a level that's too low for him to be thoroughly challenged. There are a lot of young d-men that would do a good job under those circumstances. Therefore, it will be more interesting to see how he performs at the WJC's compared to some of the other Swedish players who are already established SEL-players.
