He'll likely be a good defender in this league but not the franchise defender many people around hope for him to be.

The Flyers would be better off not sinking a ton of assets we don't really have when we could likely end up with a defensemen like Fleury or McKeown who have may have more upside but may not be a safe pick like Ekblad.
