Klefbom has a lot of potential and I am pretty far away from writing him off.

Regarding his offense I am not really sure what you were expecting but one thing which (imo) is a red line for many FBK prospects is that they normally focus 100% on defense. Once they are comfortable defensively they start taking more initiative in the offense. Klefbom certainly has the attributes to be a good two-way defenseman.

Just for comparison, Klefbom in SHL:

10/11 23 GP 1 G 1 A 2 P
(entry draft 2011)
11/12 44 GP 2 G 1 A 3 P
12/13 10 GP 0 G 3 A 3 P

Note also that even though these numbers would screem bust on hfboards he was actually considered to be one of the best defensemen in the SHL during the spring of 11/12 and before his injury in 12/13.

Looking at that I wouldn't say that he is busting with respect to what he has done before offensively. He wasn't drafted for his offense.
