Klefbom has too much upside and Musll is possibly our next Ladislav Smid.

Sidenote: I can't believe I'm toying with the idea of giving up Magnus in any proposal.
I agree--he is the one guy I think everyone is under valueing--that being said the oilers need another NHL ready D-man to buy time so we do not rush any of the kids on the blue line. If Hartikenen steps it up and continues to develop faster then MPS--it is conceivable he could be the number 2 lw of the future. MPS has too much skill for the third line.

With Sutton gone and Whitney an unknown factor--oilers may need to look at the options. The rebuild is over and it time for advance development to start Volchenkov is the perfect age for a deal like this.
