Sweet!!!
These are my thoughts as well. It's obviously crazy early but based on what we've heard Ekblad and Ho-Sang have a chance to match Doughty and Stamkos.
The one time I saw Ekblad play live this year he was phenomenal. Very gifted offensive player for only being a 15 year old defenseman. Didn't show any weaknesses defensively either.
