Why is he touted as the next savior?

I should add that I believe the hype enough to have acquired him in my ESPN keeper league.
Klefbom is the complete package when it comes to skill set, plain and simple. Size, excellent skating (both agility and straight away speed), very active stick (but controlled, doesn't take bad penalties), plays physical. Above average shot, but the offensive instincts aren't always active.

I think a good comparable is Petry minus all the horrible decisions on breakout plays. Klefbom can actually make a breakout pass. You eliminate the horrible giveaways with Petry and you'd have a very good defenceman. Klefbom should be this, and I'd actually like to see him paired with Petry, and Smid with J Schultz.
