There is no doubt that Rundblad has some exceptional skills. I have seen Rundblad play a few times in Sweden and he was one of the best players in the elite league, but he is exactly the type of player that will have a hard time adjusting his game to quicker speed and less space in NA. There's been so many stars in the SEL that are simply not made for the smaller rinks and faster pace. Now I don't think Rundblad will be a complete bust, he's simply too skilled. But he will need time, preferably in the AHL.
