I think in this case you don't gamble you'll have a top 3 forward who may never even report to the team, you just take the top 4 Dman who is at the time an equal or even better talent and look for a homerun forward later in the draft which the Sens did with Sorrenson.
I don't see how you can compare Sorrenson and Tarasenko. Rundblad at this point just looks like he's a better talent relative to his position. I say we 'win' in that trade.
