Halischuk once scored 15 goals with the least ice time on the team. Blum once was our #3D. Losing them both for literally nothing is truly unacceptable.
There's a such thing as "small sample size," you know. Blum was the number 3(really more the number 4) for a span of about 20 games. Those 20 games were the only ones in which he looked like an even passable NHL defender. Every other appearance has been a train wreck.

We can't wait forever. He was drafted 6 years ago and he's still not an NHL regular...at some point, you have to cut your losses and invest in other players.
