Preds fans still think "but he was a first round pick! he's got value!"

by this point, he should have stuck in the NHL, but has been in and out of the lineup due to inconsistency. He looks great at times, he looks terrible at times.

Thomas Hickey went fourth overall...and do you know what the Kings got from NYI for him? Nothing. He was on waivers.

Blum might be packaged for something meaningful, but he's not a centerpiece at this point. As Trig said in another thread, I think we sent the wrong sweetener to Toronto in order to get them to take Lombardi.
