Seems like many on here feel comfortable counting their chickens before they hatch. Learn from our past mistakes, guys.

I'm not writing Klefbom off as a bust by any means, but he is definitely not a sure bet to be a bloody top pairing guy despite how some on here speak of him. Let's hope he shows more next game.
Yep, where is the evidence that this is toprank player? Theres no evidence at this point that this is going to be an NHL player period.

Years ago the same posters were waxing on about how good Teubert, or Abney, or Peckham, or whoever would be. We always seem to hype up our unseen prospects possibly due to a need to have hope that theres something better upcoming then what we have currently in the Oilers lineup.

Right now Klef would have to be one of the biggest unknowns due to how much time he's missed.
