And no, I'm not saying Klefbom is going to rack up points like Karlsson.
Yeah, but Klefbom never really produced in juniors either. Also when you look at his play he lacks that high end offensive skillset of an offensive d. Erik Karlsson you could see having all world offensive skill just hadn't figured it out at all. At 18 Karlsson was a stupid stupid hockey player, didn't know his feet from his face. Just goes to show that lack of hockey IQ sometimes is just a lack of maturity.
