Maybe next season or at least after the All-Star break before any consideration about making 20yo Gormley an everyday NHL player and opening a roster spot.
And what will you do when Rundblad decides he doesn't want to play in the AHL and would rather eat fat checks in the KHL then sit around and wait? You completely lose a major asset with a lot of value. You might be able to pull this of with Gormley (who wouldn't have many other cards to play), but keeping Rundblad down will not go well for you.
