In hindsight look at the 2008 draft. Would you rather have Doughty/Pietrangelo or one of Boedker, Wilson, Filatov, Bailey, Hodgson?

Most scouts would agree that Ekblad is a can't miss defensive prospect. Guys like Doughty almost never get traded, so its worth the risk to try and trade up even if Ekblad doesn't achieve that level of skill.

I don't think either team would drop further than 8 though.
Weird draft to pick since it had a bunch of studs. I think after Stamkos - Karlsson maybe the next best player from that draft (15).

1. Stamkos
2. Doughty
3. Bogosian
4. Pietrangelo

12. Myers
15. Karlsson

22. Eberle
27. Carslon

32 Voynov
38. Josi

51. Stepan

82. Henrique

186 Demers
