I haven't noticed Blum and Ellis playing together in Milwaukee. The coach doesn't want to pair two smaller D-men together. Ellis and Bartley have been paired. Blum was paired with Valentine last game. Jarvinen was with COR last game. That way you have a bigger physical guy with a smaller speedier guy. Bartley isn't too physical, but Ellis isn't afraid to throw some hits out there, so it evens out.
