Good return (I think Turris is better than what he showed last month though but his value was Rundblad and not Rundblad+2nd).
But I'm surprised they didn't ask for a winger back. Rundblad is as much of a project as Filatov tbh (and Filatov isn't bolting for the AHL to not come back line the stereotype suggests). However, I've watched Rundblad a decent amount since the season started and he's a bit of a wreck in his own zone especially since Jared Cowen isn't covering his mistakes anymore so I expect him to get less TOI than OEL did last season under Tippet (and I don't think OEL was a "liability" last season but Rundblad will be at times). But he did show some good offensive flashes and Yandle+OEL+Rundblad is a bit excessive, I'd love to have one of them in Colorado because outside of EJ+Elliot, our d are all slow and immobile.
Yet another blue-chip d-man to add to your list. But we still need skill upfront in a bad way. Without making much of a reach, I would assume another deal will be made sooner or later for a forward. Summers lookd good last game; OEL, Yandle, Aucoin, and Klesla are obvious starters. Flemko is getting better and better. That leaves Morris, Gormley, and Murphy as potential pieces in a trade.
Whatever happens, we got the better end of this deal by far. People keep saying Rundblad has defensive issues, but we don't need him this year and maybe not next year. Turris wasn't even playing. We got a future top-four player for someone that was no longer in our daily roster and a 2nd round pick to boot. Fantastic.
I also feel like the coaches we have can make him even better than he could have been in Ottawa. Just look at OEL this season, we have a great coach for our defensemen.
Summers will be sent down for sure so that narrows it to 7.
With the Flyers losing Pronger for the season could we potentially move someone like Roszival (who has 1 year left on his deal) to them for some help up front? That way we wont have to worry about taking on tons of salary if we move some in Rozy.
Congrats on the trade, guys. His defense can make you want to pull out your hair at times but the man is calm and skilled. Also knows how to throw the occasional hit. Always gave me the impression of a hard worker.
I really feel like we got sold short, but Rundblad was a prospect I enjoyed watching play and I'm happy to see him go to a team that I like.
