Blum has potential probably not a 1st or 2nd pair here, but could develop into a solid NHL'er but he will need to be traded to do so. Hes too far down the food chain here. Weber, Josi, Klien, Ellis are going to be the core here for the forseeable future. It is in Blums best interest and this teams to find a new home for him and get some return to the Preds while his value is still relativly high.
agreed. he is doing just fine, might as well trade him while he has value vs scratching him or not playing him to his potential and possibly losing value. He could be a vital piece in a trade to get us a forward that can score.
