thinking back, Blum screwed us, and possibly himself, with one or two games.

I remember Blum being called up just before the trade deadline in 2011, and pretty much everyone believed he was being showcased for a trade. IIRC the rumor was we were going to get Smid from the Oil for Blum.

And then Blum plays lights out in his showcase game and we end up keeping him. He played well the rest of the year and into the playoffs and then went straight into the crapper.

have to wonder how different his career might have been had he played for the defense starved Oil instead of us

also would be interesting to see if we thought Poile had done well by getting Smid(who was a pending UFA I think) I'd Blum had ended up playing well for the Oil
