There's an issue there. We need a guy who can play top pairing right now, not potentially so in the future. We have three "potential" guys developing in the system already.

The value is there, and I like Rundblad (and he is one of the few defense prospects we could actually trade for, since he's not presently in the AHL), but the state of our system is such that we need Johansen more.

Thanks, Howson, for cleaning up MacLean's toxic waste. Welcome, Kekalainen; let's get good things built!
