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
Not to mention, Blum's "emergence" directly resulted in Franson being ruled expendable.
