Everyone is excited about Ekholm, however, so far it's been mainly because of his play overseas. So far, he's had trouble adapting to NA ice. He played with the Preds for some of the 11-12 season and was eventually called out by Trotz for poor play. This past year in Milwaukee (AHL), I believe he played well, but missed some time due to injury.

The only reason why Postma was being discussed was just to make a point that huge numbers in juniors (or more exactly the Dub), doesn't translate into top-end talent. Though it wasn't a knock on Postma.
