I would disagree only because we saw him handle weight just fine last year. I do not think Blum's problem is anything physical. It is all mental with him. He sees a play, and doesn't trust what he sees. That is why anytime he has a bit of time he has made poor passes or the wrong read. Now that I type this, I wonder that, because the game was so fast after making the jump to the NHL, Blum had no time to think and just played. Now that his brain has caught up to the pace, he overthinks.
