It's truly sickening other draft eligibles won't get the right credit because some people are too much of ******* to let go of the past. Ekblad is no McDavid. He does not have even a top 5 selection locked down in my eyes. Remember Angelo Esposito?
Yeah cause +/- is totally an indication of defensive ability...not.

Ekblad is really good offensively and even better defensively.

Barrie aren't the best of teams this year so far. Scheifele is gone and he was arguably the best player in the league last year. So of course they're going to suffer a bit. Ekblad has been very good this year and is a top 5 lock in almost everyone else's opinion.
