    Man, its hard to say.

    He's certainly worth a look and will get signed by someone very soon. I have no doubt who ever signs him will give him a shot to make the club right away (a la Dekeyser) but if he sticks is another thought. That makes him closer then other college kids Matheson and Schmaltz but they were both 1st round picks so you know the door will be there for them to come through.

    Ekholm would be the only guy I would consider dropping for him, but I dont think I am willing to take that risk just yet.

    Nothing I have read on him suggests he is going to be a beast in any particular area, so if you take the wait-and-see approach and lose him to someone else as a result, I don't think there's any worry that you are losing a game breaker. He might be better than Ekholm, or safer than Schmaltz, but I don't think the difference is sufficiently clear-cut to make the swap just yet.
