He is stuck competing with Schlemko, Summers and Stone. All 3 of those guys are more steady in their own end, and Phoenix is having issues with defense this year. Summers and Stone are ready, and can afford to sit in the pressbox. Rundblad needs playing time, so he was sent back down. On any other team, with any other coach, he is an everyday player. Do not mistake the incredibly high standards Tippett has for a player not being good enough.

One of Yandle or Rundblad will not be with this organization past the draft, I bet.
