Ekblad has maintained his impressive performance - but as great as he is, i don't see anything about him that would land him as the best '96 in the draft - Reinhart is unbelievably skilled, doing brilliantly on a horrifically bad team, and has the benefit of being a forward. ho-sang is starting to pull it together and will be highly ranked (albeit, not at reinhart's level), etc.
i'm impressed by ekblad a lot - but i'd be really surprised if he was taken #1 in '14.
