Klavins could be taken for a team that see a possible 4'th line player that could be available within a short time period because he is an overager! As a 7'th pick it's not waste. He has played in SEL already and he has the size and have learned the good swedish defensive play. So there is a chance, but an unlikely one as you say. Depends probably on a scout being asked by the team if they have a personal favourite for the last pick. [Jannik Hansen got picked in the 9'th round in 2004 by Vancouver based on such a scout].
