Gormely is the #1 but Rundblad has elite puckhandling and on-ice vision. It's a completely different skill set and let's face it Senators fans threw the strength of Rundblad's SEL MVP season in everyone's face last summer so we are still seeing that reflected in some rankings. THN had Gormely in the top 10 and Rundblad in the top 15 so we can't be overly shocked that someone might have their rankings reversed. It's closer than most of us want to admit to.
Rundblad is a defensive liability but offensively I don't think there is a D man out there with his sort of upside. How good would he look in Edmonton playing with their kids?
