Why would you compare Ebert to Johnson.
Ebert is a better defenseman than Johnson was at his age IMO. Ebert is also playing in the OHL at 16 in one of the top CHL organizations in the country. The CHL is the best developmental path for defensman by far.
Ebert is a stud and will be a franchise defenseman. He's only 16 years old and is 6'1", 185lbs and looks like he's been in the league 3-4 years.
Ebert is well ahead of Doughty in his development so far. IMO he is the #1 for 2012 at this point. He has been every bit as advertised plus more.
