You're right that his international play is important confirmation of the strides he's made in his development. Mid-season tourneys like the Karjala Cup are ignored (or unknown) in North America, but after watching a couple of Ekholm's games in that tourney, I came away extremely impressed. If he indeed plays at the World CHampionships, as expected, hopefully he gets the attention he deserves.
