Buffalo has Ristolainen, Zadorov, Mcnabb, and Pysyk. With all that I just can't see why they would pick Ekblad even if he is the BPA, it would be nearly as redundant as if we drafted Willy Nylander (one of the smallest skill players). Add the risk of drafting a defenseman that early and their desperate lack of scoring and it just doesn't make sense.
Sure anything can happen but I feel like the only thing stopping us from drafting him would be a team ahead of us winning the lotto and bumping us down to 3rd, or trading the pick away for more experienced help. The latter potentially being in our best interest, but at this point I think we'll at least have to option to take him.
