OEL would regularly get burned wide his rookie year, miss his assignments in front of the net, and wasn't providing any offense to boot. Rundblad doesn't have to be be the worlds best defensive player to play for a Tip team, Yandle is evidence of that. He just needs some more time.
I'd go so far as to say that Stone makes the NHL squad when we start up.
