Rundblad has always been weak defensively though - that's remnant from his draft year. I remember watching the WJHC in 2009 when everyone was talking about Victor Hedman being the next big thing and coming away amazed at how well he moved the puck. But he was terrible in his own zone, and it's continued today as well.

It's not even a size thing - Rundblad's in-zone hockey sense is just terribly poor.
