I'm saying Klefbom is going to be skilled and Bieksa is on the decline.

It's pretty easy to win a trade when you compare someone's ideal development path to someone's worst.

Let me try one for you...I wouldn't trade Jensen for RNH, Jensen will be a top tier scorer next year while RNH is going to retire because his shoulder never heals. (See it's pretty stupid)

You can't avoid old though. Injuries are a maybe, regression due to aging is almost assured.

To put it another way, the oilers think they'll get at least a decade out of Klefbom. Bieksa has - at best- 4 to 5 good years left.
