The reason I think Blum is available is b/c they have many D prospects they can/will develop. While they like Blum, they are in need of scoring, badly up front. I also think the lack of game-time with Blum (read; patience) is also a factor. His role hasn't been defined yet with the Preds. He can - has the tools - to move the puck and qb the PP.

I don't think Read for Blum is overpayment by any stretch.

edit: I have watched him play and when he is ON, he looks great on the ice - he needs more mentors, which by the sounds of it, we have lots of. Same type of reaction people had with Schenn, he lacked consistency. The track record with Blum is there, based on accolades - while I know it doesn't always translate, I feel his mind for the game is to good for him not to succeed.
