I think it's more of a "get him while you can" move. In 1-2 seasons, Rundblad will either be untouchable or a guy you wouldn't want to touch. The hope is that he eventually becomes the former. Personally I'm higher on Rundblad than most, I suppose, but I can see why a lot of people are not(risk-factor). Especially with Nelson involved.
