If people who watch Rundblad regularly say he is lost defensively and can't connect with his teammates offensively, I believe them. While he might have a high ceiling, I'm interested in immediate contribution, especially if I'm trading Nielsen or Nelson. Or Bailey, for that matter.

As for Donovan not being close to Rundblad as a prospect. One is a liability in the AHL, the other has been the best defender on a team that includes Travis Hamonic. When the Isles next play, they'll only play one rookie PMD, and that'll be Donovan.

I wonder, hypothetically, whether PHX fans would trade Rundblad for Donovan straight up.


So you can value the opinion of PHX fans when it comes to their prospects, but not when it comes to trade proposals involving their team?

Also, the isles just used a high 2nd to draft Pokka, another pmd.
I'm in no rush to see Snow deal any top center prospects. I want to see what Strome/Brock Nelson can do in the NYI top 6.
What would your plans be with Strome/Nelson if they both pan out? Just curious.
