Ekholm is IMO tied for our third best D prospect with Ellis. Blum has proven he is awesome, and Josi has done more in the AHL then the other two. I am very high on Ekholm though. He's a big guy with shutdown ability, something we dont have a lot of
Plus he was very good offensively too last season both for his SEL-team and for the national team. He had a dip at the end of the season, but the first half he was shockingly good. In one of the european hockey tour tournament he was hands down the best d-man, even though there was loads of high quality d-man there (from KHL and what not). He was moving the puck, being great in the PP and great defensively. At the end of the season he was a bit worn down but still he must be a serious candidate for most improved player in swedish hockey 2010-2011, since he was miles miles better than what was expected and what he showed in jwc for example.
