Hell, Tom Gilbert would look pretty good back there. Its a mess.
Also Sam Reinhart would look pretty good in an Oiler uni. He would open the door to getting rid of that pretender Gagner and we would have two legit top six centers going forward.
As always, current players are used as a comparable so we can get an idea what kind of player the draft prospect is like.
I agree even if Ekblad tops out at Bouw, he would still help our D.
I just don't want people to think he's a Subban, Pronger, Jones, etc.
We'll see where he's at by June. Nurse, after all, rose quite a bit from Oct-Nov to the draft
