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.
i think the pretty obvious path for klefbom is to start in the AHL, and if he plays well he'll be the first call-up for injury .... then if he plays well during his call up, he might just stick with the big club, if not, then it's back to the AHL for more seasoning
