I think Weber and Klein will big parts of the Preds defense for years to come.
You are right about the preds fans winning on this. My argument is more to let preds fans know how special a player they have waiting in the wings. I wouldn't necessarily call Klein a stay at home defenseman though because he likes to lead the rush so often. But his defensive skills are on par with stay at home guys. I just get the impression that Klein doesn't get the hype or recognition that he should. Part of that, as I have said before, probably lies behind his unflashy style. Any news on his status with the team? Will they sign him this summer? I don't think he's got anything left to prove in the OHL...
