Blum's performance this season, is why i'm not overly excited and ready to annoint Josi just yet. We have a great record of young guys (D and F) coming up and performing well, they fit in rather seemlessly. Then they always, always, always hit that sophomore slump. And unfortunately, it seems that many of the Preds prospects don't break out of it as quickly, or ever, as other organizations have seen.

Not only is Blum not as effective this season, Klein is definitely less effective. He's in danger of becoming the Arkhipov of defense, although having a consistent partner with NHL experience/ability would really go a long way with Klein. So i'm hopeful that the second half of the season is much better for him.
