This applies to every player who has played defence for the Sens this year.

However I wasn't talking about inconsistent play, that is something that happens to most NHLers over the course of an 82 game schedule.

IMO DR is just struggling with the speed and space (lack of) of the NHL game. I believe he would benefit significantly from a stint in the AHL playing 20+ minutes a night, adjusting his game to the NA rink and style.

I have wondered why the Sens kept him in Ottawa while sitting him in the pressbox for 18 of the first 30 games.

When Kuba and Gonchar return, I really can't see Rundblad not being sent to Bingo, unless he would opt for the SEL instead.
