I mean, if he doesn't get to play in Ottawa it's better than just sitting in the press box..
He can do that I'm pretty sure. He'd take a 3 hour limo ride to Bingo.

He does play PP, behind Karlsson and Gonchar. They don't just hand that ice time out when you have those two already in the lineup.

It is his first season in NA not only NHL. Do you think MacLean is diletant to destroy him?

It's pretty obvious that he is headed for Bingo. Murray and Mmaclean have both said that young players need to play and he isn't playing up with the big Sens.

Nothing wrong with 25+ minutes down in Bingo...

We don't know how long they plan to sit him. For all we know, he's in next game. Guessing what's gonna happen is all it is, a guess.

I think they're waiting on Carkner's return to make some decisions. If they are, I doubt Rundblad sits every game until then. I doubt they think twice about sitting Lee if Rundblad plays a game and plays well. I think Bingo's a last resort, and I don't think they're there yet.

Right now IMO they're mishandling him. They should have sent him to the AHL right away if they were planning on sitting him this many games. He needs to be on the ice playing and developing.

Hard to criticize it in the short-term if you don't know what they are thinking or planning. They've only got 7 healthy D...I am kinda wondering why they haven't sent him to Bingo games here and there and then brought him back right after. Maybe they end up doing this, maybe the convenience hasn't been there.

I'd say based on Lee's play last game, #7 will be in the lineup

He bombed a few clearing chances and I think he lost his confidence a bit, the play were he got the puck at his blueline and just froze with it and gave it away, it was really bad. He also can't get pucks on net.

Brian Lee has 60 games going back to last season and he has only 3 assists in those 60 games. He has 0 points this year, at some point he can't have zeroes everywhere, and -3, he's gotta get results besides barely outplaying a future stud defenseman

The only thing that slightly concerns me with Rundblad going to Bingo, is that it is apparently a negative environment down there right now. On top of that Bingo is terrible.

Lee's not here to put up points, could he be putting up more assists? Sure, it would be nice! That's not the focus of his game though.

And why send Rundblad to the A? I was under the impression he was sitting to help him transition to a season longer than he's used to, or is that not true? Because if that is the case sending him down to the AHL to play more minutes in kinda counter-productive...

You're the only one to criticize his game. I didn't see anything wrong with it.

My guess is he dresses for the next game but I agree with you that once carkner returns he could very well find himself in Bingo.

Well if he makes the team better & wins a few games maybe he helps to change that environment. If I were Murray I would send down Da Costa & Rundblad & bring up O'Brien for a few weeks. I would move Z. Smith to centre the 2nd line & let O'Brien centre the 3rd line. That would give us more size down the middle, speed & good two way play. Both Da Costa & Rundblad would obviously help Bingo improve & it might help both their confidences.

Greening - Z. Smith - Butler

What has O'Brian done this season to deserve a call up?

Everything that has been asked of him from what I have seen & read. It's not always about points & in Ottawa he wouldn't have to score regularly, it's about everything else he does well & if he scores it's a bonus. He's bigger & stronger than Da Costa, he's better defensively, he has some offence to his game, he's a fast skater & he's decent at faceoffs. He can play RW or C & because of his size he can play on any line. That gives Maclean a lot more options than Da Costa.

While Da Costa is obviously more offensively gifted he doesn't seem to be helping the team win at the moment. It might just help his confidence to go to Bingo for a few weeks to get more ice time.

Let's wait and see if he's in the lineup next game.

Here we go again, Same as Karlsson being mishandled 2 years ago?

Sometime, you need to play the game live at the NHL

That wouldn't necessarily prove anything, I've already said Rundblad's due for a game, especially after a 5 day layoff and 3 games sat prior. They have to get Rundblad in at some point and nothing Lee does is going to keep him from being the odd man out. No matter how good the guy plays he isn't jumping EK, Cowen or the vets for ice time (he hasn't proven to bring more importance than any of those guys either)

This isn't really all that comparable to Karlsson though. Karlsson never sat 6 of 8 games. He struggled, he went to the A, he improved, his play regressed a tad, he sat for 3 games over the WJC, and then he didn't look back.

not sure you reply correctly to my comment...

Sens didn`t handle Rundblad the same way than EK

But, I think they handled him correctly.

CJam613 was saying he should have started in Bingo right away, I disagree.

NHL first*, then a player can realize what he needs to improve on.

* IF a player is way to far from the NHL, then no of course.

Sure it would be nice for him to play right nowbut he is still learning even if he not playing regular games: the NHL rink size, the coach system, his teammates tendencies, etc..
