Unexpected until I noticed Murray having an intense convo on the phone. I would have liked to pick up a scorer like Etem, but I don't know much about Rundblad.

Pierre is running out of uppers.

I would have expected a forward pick, but overall not that bad of a move. He's a year closer than anyone available at 16.

Good trade for Ottawa.

EDIT: Even better pick for the Blues. Tarasenko will be a star.

He was 17th last year... if that is what the scouting staff wants then fine.

**** Murray

I hate this move. Even more since St. Louis drafted Tarasenko. God damnit.

Sort of anti-climatic, but I figure that Murray wasn't sold on the forwards who were left. Rundblad is a good pickup.

Meh.

We lost our pick to St. Louis for him.

David Rundblad
Prospect Grade: 7.5 C (About Prospect Grades)

Profile Contributed By: HF Staff
History

2007-08: Played with Skelleftea's U20 team, registering 26 points in 35 games. Competed with the U18 WJC squad.

2008-09: Played for Skelleftea in the SEL, posting 10 assists in 45 games. Represented silver medal winning Sweden in the 2009 WJC.
Talent Analysis

Rundblad is an offensive minded defenseman with very good size and puck skills. He has impressive vision and likes to move the puck into the offensive zone with slick stickhandling and good speed. Handles the puck with confidence and has very good poise. A great option from the blueline, where he releases a fairly accurate shot and also find his teammates with tape-to-tape passes. Size and strength is good.

In his own end, Rundblad tends to not play it simple enough at times. He is a tad too creative and could also be more aggressive and determined in his play. If he develops his defensive game, he will be a high-scoring two-way defenseman. If not, he will still be a capable power play quarterback, but a potential liability in his own end.
Future

Is signed by Skelleftea through the 2010-11 season.

Sounds like Karlsson MK II with the creativity stuff...gonna be some long nights here in Ottawa, but some very fun ones as well.

I guess the scouting staff didn't like the forwards that were available, not a bad move for who was on the board.

Im pretty sure that this is the first time ever that we dont have a 1st round pick. Is this true?

I am content with the decision. Lets not forget, Runblad has an extra year of development under his belt than anyone we would have drafted today.

His style is very comparable to Karlsson's but he's a fair bit bigger. He's a quality prospect no doubt, but do you really need him when you have EK already and lack forward prospects? Time will tell I guess.

I agree after #15, Murray looked like he was panicking or at the very least trying to get something done because the guy he really wanted was taken (I'm guessing at #15).

Great move by Murray. We will all be thanking Murray a few years down the road when our D is incredible.

Fine by it. After I saw Fowler and Gormley go, I didn't really like anyone too much. I thought trading down a little to get a second round pick wouldn't have been bad either.
