Not all too surprising about Klefbom's struggles. OKC has been a developmental graveyard under Nelson's regime, it's where promising careers have gone to die for the most part although it's obviously way too early to proclaim Klefbom a bust but the early signs don't look good.
I don't know if that's because Nelson doesn't know how to develop young players or if it's the Oilers stink spreading to OKC but it has been an epidemic that has plagued the Oilers organization for years. Even Petry who is one of the few success stories to come out of OKC looks to have flatlined or even regressed in some facets.

Then again, the young players on the big club outside of maybe Hall aren't progressing either so it seems to be an organizational problem moreso than just an OKC problem.
It makes it hard to get excited for any prospect based on their track record.
