Mattias Ekholm should be a Flyer yesterday

I’m the biggest Mattias Ekholm fan you’ll ever find, and I say that with authority. I watched his entire career play out live, he scored the first playoff goal I was ever in-person for, and I have a puck signed by him sitting next to me on my desk as I write this. He’s consistently been one of the most undervalued assets in the NHL and I love his game; he’s my favorite player in the history of the league. With all of that said, I can say this: all of the following will be an objective look at why he’s a fit for this team and what he’s worth.
