Klefbom for Kuznetsov is fair... both are only potential at this point- one a potential top forward and the other a potential top pairing defender... both have excelled in men's leagues outside NA... ignoring need etc. the value is there. Argue what you will but the facts are that never in the history of the NHL has a U22 player with a) 105 points (Hall) b) 126 points (Eberle) or the two most recent first overalls been worth an unproven, untested 20-year-old who will be 22 before he debuts in NHL...
Klefbom for Kuznetsov isn't even close to fair. That's like me saying Yakupov for Orlov.
