It's better to Let him Earn his Spot. As it stands, he's considered better then Brodin, and Brodin is considered "amazing", so there's that.
At no point in his career has Klefbom been considered better than Brodin, maybe he closed the gap last season because he was so far behind Brodin in the first place but never better and i'm sure that SouthSwe can confirm this.

The point is that Brodin was considered NHL ready going into this season. Klefbom especially considering the fact that he lost a valuable season of development due to injury, will probably need a season in the AHL to get used to the pro game. If he absolutely blows the coaches away in Training Camp then he will have earned a spot but anything less and he should be AHL bound.
