Get us some Nylander, Reinhart or Draisaitl!
No Ekblad please. Simple reason, we don't need more defense. Look at Nashville, they basically got ripped off at the draft. Don't get me wrong, Jones is amazing, but he will just not score the 40 goals NSH desperately needs to contend.
D also usually takes longer to be NHL ready. Jones was. Can Ekblad be? Maybe, he always seemed to have played agaist much older people. But he will also not be able to help with our biggest weakness: offense.
Our team looks horribad right now. And Hank is doing nobody a favor.
Stop. Ekblad is going to be a force, which is something we haven't had since Leetch. Our team couldn't use that? Ekblad is the second player to ever get exceptional status in the OHL, after Tavares. He'll be playing next year.
