I'm wondering if Klefbom won't be Adam Larsson 2.0... he was also very highly touted (and I believed the hype) and he's had a fairly "lukewarm" transition to the NHL level of play. Not saying he's terrible but people probably (unrealistically) expected more from him.

Expected for dmen but realistically it will likely be several years before Klefbom makes a positive impact on the Oilers blueline. Probably looking at a Smid like trajectory for his career... could be 4-5 years before he becomes a solid dman who looks like he definitely belongs in the top 4 on a regular basis.
