It's an example of how drafting BPA works...they stocked up at one position and got a player another team coveted and filled a need with the return. Rundblad didn't have the year he had this year...and likely looked like more of a project for St Louis while EJohnson and Petro were ready to go.

No one should be doubting Tarasenko's real good either. He was a top 5 talent in the draft. The questions of how long will you have the guy scared teams off...the KHL becomes more attractive by the year.
