The World Juniors take center stage beginning on Boxing Day, and Oiler fans are going to have to check the schedule and programs. There are four Oiler blue to keep an eye on. Oscar Klebom got a look at things and "talked to Tambellini" while playing a solid game for Sweden against the Canadians last night. Klefbom looked good to me, he was on what looked like the third pairing and was part of the PK rotation. I noticed he seemed to get more shifts as the game wore on and Klefbom was out on the ice during the final minute of play. He's a rangy kid, I saw him cheat for offense only once and in fact he re-set for position several times (it looked like he was going against his instincts on 50/50 puck pursuits, etc). Hard to tell by one game but he's a bigger kid and mobile. --The four lights are:
Oscar Klefbom, #6 for team Sweden.
Martin Marincin, #21 for team Slovakia
Martin Gernat, #25 for team team Slovakia.
David Musil, #6 for team Czech Republic.
I'm not an expert on any of this ...
