I rarely rarely have any faith in Poile, but in this instance, I really hope he does the right thing and trades Blum. I know Blum is young but Poile really has the power to significantly delay or harm his career by scratching him game after game. And with the new CBA and him being on a 2 way contract, I don't think he is eligible for a "conditioning stint" in Mke like Halischuck got...I'm pretty sure he'd have to go through waivers. (can someone verify this for me?)

Bartley has been ok the past 3 games, not a huge sample size but once Gill comes back, and with Eckholm in the queue, we will be just fine on defense. Give Blum a fresh start on a new team, whether through waivers or a trade to get us a forward or something.
