Whoa whoa whoa. MacLean literally came out and said "Rundblad is a better player than Lee". He has proceeded to play like crap since that comment and Lee has stepped up in a big way. Rundblad was given every single chance to stay in the lineup but it was pretty clear he had and has a lot to learn still.

Saying Rundblad hasn't had the same opportunities as a guy like Lee (who's been a healthy scratch more than any player who isn't an enforcer in the NHL) is a total cop out. Rundblad needs to earn his time like everyone else. Lee has taken that spot for now and rightfully so. It could change tomorrow for all I know but Rundblad needs to do something positive when he's in. His last 3 or 4 games were not enough and were pretty bad.
