You can't ignore these injuries aren't hurting his development.
It is pretty tough to take your position seriously when you call Brodin a franchise defensemen and at the same time you want to question anyone who feels Klefbom will be a guaranteed NHL'er. Should we conclude from the fact that Brodin is out right now with a broken collarbone that he is to brittle to play in the NHL? Has this injury hurt his development enough to make him doubtful going forward?

Why not just admit what almost everyone else knows. These are two terrific young prospects that at this point both look to be sure fired NHL'ers.
