True, but Kundratek does have the problem of being a bit redundant when you look at the current roster.

Valentenko provides the toughness this backline sorely lacks. McIlrath isnt ready...Sauer provided some last season, but he needs help in that department.

We both brought up Valentenko's speed, which is the thing that could ultimately hold him back.
