In my opinion this team needs Ekblad. I like our D prospects. Nurse, Klefbom, Marincin, Simpson, Musil, Gernat show good potential. But, Ekblad is the real deal. He is going to be a number 1 d-man in the NHL, and he has the drive and attitude to succeed. If Buffalo takes him before we can, its time to start thinking about trading down.
If Ekblad isn't there we should be looking for a 10-20 pick and a roster player. Then we can target some of the big power forward prospects that this draft has to offer.
Perlini and Ritchie would likely be gone, but Tuch, Kempe and Larkin, and possibly even Virtanen could still be available.
