Good return (I think Turris is better than what he showed last month though but his value was Rundblad and not Rundblad+2nd).

But I'm surprised they didn't ask for a winger back. Rundblad is as much of a project as Filatov tbh (and Filatov isn't bolting for the AHL to not come back line the stereotype suggests). However, I've watched Rundblad a decent amount since the season started and he's a bit of a wreck in his own zone especially since Jared Cowen isn't covering his mistakes anymore so I expect him to get less TOI than OEL did last season under Tippet (and I don't think OEL was a "liability" last season but Rundblad will be at times). But he did show some good offensive flashes and Yandle+OEL+Rundblad is a bit excessive, I'd love to have one of them in Colorado because outside of EJ+Elliot, our d are all slow and immobile.
