He's struggled immensely at times this year, and put pressure on his playing partners to cover up. I don't want Klefbom to have to endure the same.
Justin Schultz tore the hell out of the AHL and 100% for sure should be a top 2 dman, at worst top 4 on this team. Schultz played in college, Klefbom has been playing in the Swedish mens league. Justin Schultz is doing just fine this year other than the inevitable fatigue going from college to AHL to short NHL season. Hell half of Justin Schultz's minuses this year have been because of the horrendous play of his Dmate Nick Schultz.
