The reason that won't happen however is Bartley and Ellis on the ice at the same time would probably lead to a lot of issues. They are more than likely trying to protect Bartley by having him play with Klein. Ekholm has held his own very well and I can't wait to see more from him. We may be looking at the best second pairing in the NHL in a couple years in Ekholm/Jones with Josi/Weber on the top pairing. I can see it happening with the way these kids are playing.
I think Klein and Ekholm played together a lot last night.
