Alot of people say he over thinks things, but because being benched every chance that Trotz gets, the next time he plays he is going to over think things even more.
Blum still loses his man too often and absolutely overthinks. He has poor chemistry with Klein, too, which isn't helpful for the pairs we end up with. Wouldn't mind seeing him in place of Hannan, but if Trotz were gonna' do that it wouldn't happen until we're home and he can control the match-ups with the last change. He's got way too much upside to just "get rid"; and I honestly believe, if we were dealing, it might be Ellis going and Blum playing that 3rd pair, depending on who needs to be in a deal to bring the right scorer.
