Rundblad was acquired because he was the best asset being offered for the malcontent Turris. He needed seasoning in the minors which is why he was deemed expendable by the the Sens. That's why Phoenix held out for that pick that they parlayed into Vermette. Rundblad is developing very nicely and will be pushing for a roster spot very soon.
