What does Klefbom project as?

Likely a solid top-4 d-man.
WJC allstar Defencemen post lockout:
2012 Gormley, Klefbom
2011 Ellis, Orlov
2010 Pietrangelo, Carlson
2009 Karlsson, Subban
2008 Hedman, Doughty
2007 E. johnson, Letang
2006 J. Johnson, Bourdon
2005 Phanuef, Suter

The guy who joked Doughty.

Look at the list.

Edit: Sakich you stole my stick! been running that since jan. Whenever a misinformed individual thinks lightly of Klefbom.
Brodin was not an allstar.

Once he makes it to the AHL/NHL and shows his potential can translate to the long hall of the NA game in NA arenas, his value will skyrocket, but until then, GMs tend not to overpay for possible future value.

Edit: I'll add he could be a B piece as part of a larger swap of roster players, but he's not a centerpiece player.
Klefbom was offered minutes if he came over. Schultz was not guaranteed that.

Klefbom feels he will get top 4 minutes in SEL with PP and PK time.

what i can draw from this is most fans think that murray and Rielly are worth a 2nd round pick. We have Anaheims 2013 2nd.

Precisely, he projects to be a very important part of our core going forward. Smid, Petry, J. Schultz, and Klefbom projects to be our top 4D in 2 years time IMO. Young yes, but big, mobile, and skilled (minus Smid whose skill is limited).

I wouldn't want to try, frankly. We've got Murray, Moore, Savard, and Erixon. Klefbom's awesome, but, well, there's not much room left.
Yeah we could really use Dorsett, but we could really use Klefbom too. You guys sound set on D and could use a boost up front, so how about Erixon for Hemsky

Did you tabulate that list OB or did you read it somewhere? That list definitely speaks for itself. I'd love to see the forward list sometime as well.

No they arent. I see Klefbom as being similar to Alex Edler, agree or disagree?

No, that's just what you'd like to happen.

Brian Burke would have had him as the top player in his draft class. Too bad the Leafs didnt have a first round pick.

That's a little optimistic considering we haven't seen Klefbom in NA. However i do think the Oilers have a big toolsy defenseman who reminds me an awful lot of a younger Edler, his name is Jeff Petry. I don't expect him to end up quite as good (Edler is a premier defenseman IMO) but he should be very close in ability by the time he's 26.

It needs to be said that Schultz is considered a very well rounded player. Just because his offense lead to the hype doesn't mean the defense is lacking. The guy won best defensive player of the year award in college two years running. He's considered to have a very solid defensive game. Good enough that he would probably be an NHLer without the possible elite offense. I'd argue both players share similar ceilings as top pairing two way defenseman. Schultz has the ede on offense and Klefbom the edge on defense.

Both are likely top 4 D with top pairing potential. I don't hear anyone saying that we have the next Doughty or Pietrangelo here do you? And if you think that they are being overrated then go on record and tell us what you see them being able to accomplish in their careers.

The forward list isn't nearly as impressively stacked. Pretty easy for a 5'9" to play well against U-20s only to struggle against men or a player to get on a roll and shoot stupidly well (>20%) and get named to the all star team.

Here's the full list of all stars.

And here is a list of the post-lockout defence all stars sorted by age on January 1st, the year of the tournament.

Note that Klefbom is the only one to return for a second year other than Hedman. Phaneuf is the most recent two time winner.

I'm sorely tempted. The massive Flames trolling potential alone...

I doubt you have seen more than a handful of either of their games.

I just... bah... it's posts like this that just fuel other fan bases against all of HFOil
