Blum needs another year Milwaukee to develop. He is smart but needs to add a few pounds. If you think Franson doesn't check enough, you will be tearing your hair out when Blum is on the NHL ice. He hardly hits anybody in the AHL, usually it is a nudge.

Wilson could stand another 1/2 season in Milwaukee. I expect big things from him!

Is Josi really that good to jump to the NHL now? I haven't seen him play.
Josi will start in Milwaukee. Blum will too. I tend to disagree on Wilson though, he's physically mature enough to compete in the NHL and if brought along slowly (3rd line/2nd scoring line center/power play time) I think he'll reach his potential faster than playing against competition that plays a step slower...
