We do need one great more puck moving defender that's a right hand shot. It's going to come down to that 6th place, which currently Schlemko owns. If Schlemko is playing at a bad level, we do have Stone and Summers who could come in right away and play that position too.

Rundblad needs a full year in the AHL, and that's where I think he's going to be. If our Powerplay is horrible like it has been, Rundblad may get the call, but that's the only reason he would get call. If there is an injury, I see Stone or Summers coming up and playing

But to answer your question, he does have a future with this team. =)
Alright, thanks a lot for the info guys I have been quite high on Rundblad, and he has produced well in the minors, so was just wondering why he wasn't in a lot of your rosters.

Best of luck this year guys
