I don't disagree too much with the first part of your post though. Klefbom definitely needs to prove more to earn an NHL roster spot but lets not get too worked up about an exhibition game, his first competitive game in almost a full calendar year.
I don't take anything from one game. I didn't state that.

What I'm curious is how so many people that haven't seen klef play in ages are instead inferring he's one of the most valuable players the org has. That to me is incomprehensible. That comment and assessment of Klef being a top D is made all over this board.

The game means nothing. Except that it is the primacy information that any of us have to draw on. In essence that in primacy effect, this is what Klef looks like now. That he doesn't look like a top draftpick now. This is a sample of one, sure, but right now a sample of one is all we have to detect where the player is currently at.

I'm not deducing from one game, just saying that what was seen today is maybe more the staqus quo than anybody wants to realize.
