At the end of the day, it's the player's responsibility on the ice to get better. While Klein struggled some earlier this year, people had him way too far under the microscope. He could play a flawless game, mess up once and people were all over him. It's easy to pick apart a mistake or two per game as opposed to seeing the greater body of work.
My question is this, would Klein's play be this good if Blum were still here? Has Josi made Klein better or do their skill sets compliment each others games better? Is Josi superior to Blum? I like Blum and I think he has a bright future with us if we decide to keep him. He's going thru growing pains, much like Suter went through and Weber went through. I'm sure Josi and Ellis will have their issues at some point too. I seriously doubt Klein went out of his way to suck so Blum would be demoted to Milwaukee.
I think Klein is 1. starting to calm down, and 2. with a better D partner in Josi. This Josi kid is a beast, no doubt
