I'm with LegionOfDoom91 - McKeown or Dal Colle for me. I've read the comparisons of Ekblad to Pietrangelo and maybe there's something there. However, watching McKeown play, he really reminds of me Brian Leetch or Sergei Zubov. He's got an offensive flair in his game and his defensive play has done a complete 180 this year. He's become a much more complete player and his upside is through the roof.
As for Dal Colle, he's a linemate of Laughton and the two of them have some real good chemistry. On top of it, Dal Colle is also a very good two-way player, a must in the system that is run in Oshawa. He's also a former converted centerman, so there's some versatility to his game.
However, there's two wild cards I hope the Flyers would consider - winger Brendan Perlini in Niagara Falls or defenseman Haydn Fleury in Red Deer.
