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.
The thing I like about Reinhart more than Ekblad is that it creates an asset up front to deal imo. So we can fill two significant holes by dealing a skilled winger for a Dman in the ilk of someone like Tyutin, Voynov, Bogosian, Josi with teams of excess D or lack of scoring.
Hall - Nuge - Yak
X - Reinhart - Perron
We would likely not have a 1D but a future of Schultz, Klefbom, Nurse, Marincin, Petry + traded asset is not a bad future on the back end tbh and our C depth would be set for a long time.
