The thing is that we don't need a superstar from this draft. What we need is an impact player who fills a need.
I think a good comparable for Ekblad is Seabrook. Not a sexy name but the type of player that we can really use, same with a Bergeron type. I haven't seen Bennett play so i can't really make a judgment on him.
There aren't a lot of dynamic talents at the top of this draft and quite frankly, i think that works in our favor because we don't need another dynamic player.
