Yet another blue-chip d-man to add to your list. But we still need skill upfront in a bad way. Without making much of a reach, I would assume another deal will be made sooner or later for a forward. Summers lookd good last game; OEL, Yandle, Aucoin, and Klesla are obvious starters. Flemko is getting better and better. That leaves Morris, Gormley, and Murphy as potential pieces in a trade.

Whatever happens, we got the better end of this deal by far. People keep saying Rundblad has defensive issues, but we don't need him this year and maybe not next year. Turris wasn't even playing. We got a future top-four player for someone that was no longer in our daily roster and a 2nd round pick to boot. Fantastic.

I also feel like the coaches we have can make him even better than he could have been in Ottawa. Just look at OEL this season, we have a great coach for our defensemen.
