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).
