This just isn't true.

While Rundblad definitely has shown offensive potential, he really hasn't played that well overall in many games this year.

DR is having real problems with his defensive reads, causing him to react slower than is necessary in the defensive zone. As well he still isn't respecting the speed of NHL play, resulting in poor decisions at the offensive blue line, and he is definitely soft on his coverages.

It is obvious DR is used to being one of the fastest guys on the ice, with plenty of space to use his skills. On the smaller ice surface he has less time to make decisions and/or use his speed and puck handling skill and it shows in his play.

DR would benefit a great deal from a month or two playing top pairing minutes in the AHL, similar to Karlsson.

Comparing him to Lee is quite simply foolish.
