36 games after being out for a year and doing as well as someone who hasn't missed much.

I think Klefbom is one of those projects you see through and have time for. It is low risk / high reward imo.

I think he'll power a head of Musil with another year of AHL experience. I don't think 36 games is enough to work off both rust and developmental issues that arise after taking a year off. Give him another year in the AHL and I think it'll be another Marincin situation where he comes to the NHL and does well. There is no reason he can't get back to where he was and better. He is probably a lot closer to form pre-injury. He has been trending upwards for awhile.

Oilers need to handle this properly and let him develop for a respectable amount of time. I hope Marincin can be the template on how proper development is achieved. I really hope they don't bring Klefbom in and let him get some AHL experience (hopefully with some playoffs as well).
