Any way, I thought Klef looked good. He made one give away up the middle, but if you watch it was actually pretty fluky, it just hit the flames stick who wasn't even looking. He made a few other great plays, looked really mobile. He didn't have a good game, but, I thought he actually looked like a player who could play in the NHL this year.
I don't think you completely followed what I carefully wrote.

I've drawn a conclusion that Klefs development has been impacted, probably severely, due to missing so much hockey over the last 2 years. Again, and I repeat, this assessment has nothing to do with Klef specifically, I would state this concern for any D rank prospect that has missed this much time. People chronically underestimate how much impact something like this has on development. I've said this before re: Klefbom though, the game really not changing anything for me in that I'm not at all surprised how he looks.
