Most media, scouts, and hockey personnel in the Oiler organization feel that way about Oscar Klefbom.

It's how potential works. Based on Klefbom's potential, I would not trade him for Bieksa, even though Bieksa would make the oilers better today. It's a gamble, yes, but that's what it's all about.

I mean why WOULDN'T you trade Bo Horvat for Mike Brown? Horvat hasn't even played an NHL game and there's NO GUARANTEE he's better than Brown!
This is the worse counter I've seen lately. A 4th line scrub who washed out of this team already for the best prospect we've had since the Sedins. Brown wouldn't even make this roster, with Sestito and Weise doing his job admirably. Bieksa would get top pairing minutes.

The easiest way to lose an argument is to overstate it.
