I can't agree that we would be dealing "for" a position of strength from a position of weakness if we dealt Hagelin for Rundblad. We haven't had a PPQB since Leetch basically... Offensive D's are to us what goalies are to Philly, a black hole.

Rundblad is a bit of a gamble though. But there aren't many PPQBs out there, and Rundblad got what it takes offensively for sure.
