I am not trying to get down on him at all. I really like him. Just think Klefbom has higher upside and will be a more complete player.
He was second in the Oilers skill competition for fastest skater only a bit behind Hall.
Draft pedigree they are very similar prospects.
Klefbom had a ridicules amount of hype because of his world junior showing and play in SEL. If he matches that hype we will have a #1 in him... I think everyone's expectations have been tempered a bit with Klef. Injuries really derailed his career so far and there is just no way to know if that hasn't permanently hampered his top end potential. Still a player there most likely but from all account Maracin is already taken a big step in the NHL where as Klefbom may never play an NHL game. Should, but no guarantees.
