Ekblad - Nurse
Klefbom - Schultz

Would be tremendous.



Nope. Luckily he'll likely be going back to the OHL next season and staying far away from this freak show.
I know there is big talk about trading our 1st round pick for the 14 draft but if we can get Ekblad we would be set on defense for the next 12 yrs. I know that they take a bit of time to develop but I think Klefbom will be ready next year, Nurse the following year and Ekblad the year after or because of his size he could be ready the same year Nurse is. Our core is young enough I would be ok with letting these kids come into their own. I don't think they will be 4 yrs away.
Next year our dmen are:
Petry
J.Schultz
Belov
Klefbom
Ference
Fedun
2015 we have
Petry
J.Schultz
Belov
Klefbom
Ference
Nurse
Fedun
2016
Nurse
Klefbom
Ekblad
Petry
J.Schultz
Belov
Ference

That is plenty of size and skill.
Nurse; Ekblad
Klefbom; J.Schultz
Belov; Petry
Ference(last year of contract)
