Take away 1.5 seconds because of the size of the rink, the size of the players, the speed of the players, the impact of the hits, etc, etc, etc. Does he still make that play? Or does he make that play and get crushed?

Let's watch him play in NA and see how he reacts. Not trying to harsh anyone's vibe here, just maintaining some calm.

edit: I should point out that I'm very, very excited to see Runblad play. I can't wait for both these kids (Cowen, Runblad) to get some ice time. I just want to keep my expectation realistic. I think the Sens defence corps are going to be the envy of the league with Karlsson, Runblad, Cowen, etc in another year or two.
