Another option would be migrating Rundblad into a forward.

I have seen that video a few times before, always gives me goosebumps when imagining SWE's D in the next olympics...

Goes to show the sick offensive potential of Rundblad, although of course it's just youtube highlights so it should not be taken as guarantee for anything really. If he learns to play decent D and adapts to the speed of the NHL then I think there's little doubt that he will become great, but those two "if's" are substantial and it will take hard work and good surroundings to make it. I guess the third thing I would add (although it goes together with learning the speed of the game) is that he needs to know that when he starts going through, dangling or whatever, they won't come for the puck but rather go for the body which already happened more than a few times in OTT.

Here is a more specific one of Rundblad, with a few nice hits as well :-).
