I think you are undervaluing Klefbom. The Oilers see him as top 4 material, with some thinking he may play next year.

If Oilers are picking 6-7th and Nurse and Monahan are present- mark my words, they will select a centre to replace Gagner.
Since 2008 Dman picked in top 10.

Doughty
Bogosian
Pietrangelo
Schenn
Hedman
Ekman-Larsson
Cowen
Gudbranson
Larsson
Hamilton
Brodin

Doesn't look too risky to me, might have been risky 10 years ago but not today.
