Good thing Cowen will be back there to cover up for him.
Yeah expect a tough transition, but I'd expect him to get out of it to some degree. He still looks like an excellent standstill PP component, quick puck movement, vision, touch, one timer and if there's a chance to exploit a hole...Rundblad appears to be able to do it and then find an open man if they close it on him.

We may see the odd rush like we see all over his highlight reels...but for the most part he'll play like an NHL defensemen has to...he has all the tools to do that as well.
