Glad they brought up Condra tonight, I thought he had a great game. I see why people were making Chris Kelly comparisons.

So how high can Rundblad go on the all time defenceman scoring by the end of the season? He's 9 points away from the number 1 spot and is currently at number 8. I'm pretty sure he has 5 games left.

Sounds like Dorion and the Sens want Silfverberg to come over while Jakob himself seemed pretty sure he'd stay. Wonder where that lands.

I hope Silverberg comes over, he could learn alot by being on Alfie's wing.

I also hope that Petersson's injury gets better.

Stone is just too good to play against junior level players. He's making it look so easy.

At what point does his skill outweigh his speed? Could he be like Trent Hunter? Ryan Smyth? Cheechoo?

Looks like Murray may have done a good deal when he traded the no 16 pick in 2010 for Rundblad.

Rundblad has impressive stats in Sweden.

Not sure if the Blues would made the same trade today. They have picked up a russian forward VladimirTerasenko with the no 16 pick.

Impressive is an understatement. With 5 games to go, he has 44 points. Good for 8th best all-time single season point total by a defenseman in the SEL. He's tearing up that league.

Taresenko made a great impression at the junior championship, but I'm still happy with the deal.

Lots of time for his skating and speeding to catch up anyhow...another year of junior. He must be on WJC radar with his finish if he wasn't already...

True enough. His coaches better get him into extreme power skating for amazing players this summer.

Tarasenko is a gem of a prospect. He was very highly rated, and fell becasue he is Russian. St. Louis was prepared to gamble that he would prefer to stay in the NHL long term.

IMO, Tarasenko will be the better player, but in which league will he spend the bulk of his career.

Hard to compare but I see Rundblad as a potential #1 d-man and a franchise player at his current progression rate. I don't see an equivalent upside for Tarasenko, but they're both just prospects right now. It's kind of hard to say what either of them will do in the NHL.

I've got my fingers crossed that Rundblad continues his current curve and becomes a legit #1 dman.

Yeah well the Sens are full aware of his deficiency...something to watch for at development camp if I get a chance to go. If the guy is willing to work, it's a skill that can be improved. It may not even be speed altogether, probably mostly the first couple steps..learning explosiveness.

The good sign...by the sounds of Dorion's comments, they're expecting an NHLer. If he's in the NHL by 20-21...whatever scouts were involved with that selection added a big piece to their resume.

It's a vintage Murray pick. The wounded, forgotten or masked talent. Stone was projected to be a much higher pick but got injured and was tossed aside. He was a high risk, high reward pick that paid off because his "problem" probably wasn't a big deal. That's why Murray needs to stay in the organization, so we can keep his scouts.

He's a good player (i love those boxy Russian net hounds also) but the way St. Louis has been running things the last couple of years it seems to me maybe they took a big risk on him - Tarasenko's Dad is a bit of a nut case so who knows what the guy will do.

I think in this case you don't gamble you'll have a top 3 forward who may never even report to the team, you just take the top 4 Dman who is at the time an equal or even better talent and look for a homerun forward later in the draft which the Sens did with Sorrenson.

I don't see how you can compare Sorrenson and Tarasenko. Rundblad at this point just looks like he's a better talent relative to his position. I say we 'win' in that trade.

Yeah apparently his speed once he gets a head of steam isn't too bad, and said to be about average for the WHL, its just that he's got no explosiveness. Thats something you can easily improve and I hope our organization is as committed and insistant on him getting that help as we are.

It'd be sweet if hes a 2nd or 3rd liner who can snip it like a Rabbi, he's got the size to be a versatile player in terms of the roles he plays.
