Sending Blum down is the right move. Can't have a kid like that sitting in the press box when he could be logging 20+ minutes in the AHL.

The real question is, who will they bring up for a long road trip or should one of the remaining 6 get hurt? I think Blum needs to be the #1 guy in MKE for that to happen. When guys like Blum get sent down, rarely do they bounce right back and become the top AHL D. Wouldn't surprise me if they promote Sloan or Laakso. I think they could do this, even at the risk of losing them on re-entry waivers, because no one will pick them up.

Re: Ellis. The reports from MKE are not very good on him right now. He is mediocre on the PP and his defense leaves a lot to be desired.

Re: Josi. I think his position is far from secure. Yes, he had a nice slapper resulting in a goal the other night, but he was also primarily responsible for 2 goals against too. In Trotz' "defense first" system, his defensive abilities have a ways to go IMO.
