I'm willing to cut Blum some slack. I think he played 4 games in 5 days. Probably didn't think he would play in DC. Maybe he wasn't mentally prepared. It was Ovie. Lots of reasons for his poor performance.

Trotz did rip him. But Trotz rips all these young guys when they don't perform well. Think about his comments and decisions about Willy last year. Blum will be fine with more experience. He is still a rookie guys. It's tough to keep that in mind considering his solid play down the stretch last season. But he has yet to play a full NHL season. I think he has at least as much potential as Hamhuis, if not more. Be patient.
