And no to the OP, Rundblad would be nice, but the Oil need Gagner more. Not to mention Gagner is already a decent #2 C, whereas Rundblad hasnt cracked the NHL yet, and even if he does he isnt a lock to be a #3 D or better
it's because he has yet to show much in the NHL that he's still considered to be..
Turris > Gagner...people have convinced themselves the best is still to come, where as Gagner has had many 40 + point seasons and people have convinced themselves that they have seen Gagner's best and he won't get much better...that and the fact Turris was taken so high at #3 overall, there must be something there. of course, Cam Barker was taken 3rd overall too...just sayin'
