3) Ekblad is more like to have a Jones/Doughty rookie impact than a Larsson/Murray type.
I don't know why you want to trade picks and prospects that have top pairing potential for #3 d-men. Ference was the #3 guy on a cup winning team Petry would be a #3 guy on many good teams. We have lots of guys who can play a 2nd pairing role, we dont need that anymore. We need studs back there. I'm not trading Nurse or our potential Ekblad pick for anything less than that.
HA, buddy, you realize even if ekblad was nick lidstrom in this first year, he wouldn't succeed here. No high end draft pick is going to succeed here with this environment. So it doesnt matter who we draft, they aren't going to help us.
we need like 6-9 new players who are veterns in the nhl
