I'm sure Paajarvi's dad watchs a lot of Swedish Elite League hockey I would take his word above most of our scouts, we are very guilty of rushing prospects as an organization. Paajarvi and Lander were both rushed into the NHL sooner than they should have been, they seem to be gaining traction despite that, but a better organized and longer term approach to developing them would have been nice to see.

I don't want to gift wrap Klefbom a spot, he should earn it and some AHL time isn't going to hurt him anyway. If he played the full year in the SEL and looked as dominant as the swedish posters made him sound then sure, but coming off an injury you don't want a rookie shaking off the rust playing NHL games. Let him play 20-30 games in the AHL if he looks ready than make the call.
