Fellas, I just remember that while Kyle was on his sabbatical, all the posters were saying that all we'd get was a 3rd round pick or some warm body 4th line grinder.
Well, GMDM does it again and gets us an unbelievable return in Rundblad plus a 2nd round pick.
Just this year Rundblad was named the "Prospect of the year"...now granted after watching some Ottawa games, he has some defensive warts, but I suspect that Jim Playfair can curb those and let David's offensive capabilities flourish. Plus, he was the "right handed" d we were looking for to replace Rozy next season.
Imagine a year ago what anyone would think if we had: Yandle/OEL/Gormley/Rundblad, everyone would just crap and now we do.
Now, what we also have is a few players that will counter balance the $ demands these high end players will expect with the likes of Schlemko and Summers. Summers looks to be a fine defensive defensemen, really steady in is own end. The only thing the Yotes are missing right now is the big "bad ass" dman. That is what we need
