While Blum is the safer pick, Josi has a much higher upside. Both are great prospects that should go on to have long NHL careers - if Blum can prove himself on his next recall and if Josi can stay healthy, but in the long run Blum's upside is likely as Dan Hamhuis, while Josi I would compare to Kimmo Timonen or obviously Mark Streit.
maybe they base it on the fact Josi hasnt stayed on the ice for a full season and has a concussion history. Josi has more upside, but Blum probably will play more in the long run than Roman.

In a perfect world they play 75+ games for us for the next 10 years
