Anyways, zero risk move for the Wild. A RH shot defenseman that's only 24 and has proven capable at the NHL level. It wouldn't be the first time a guy gets into a new environment and finds his game again. On the other hand, Blum wouldn't be the first guy to see his game simply not translate to NHL caliber hockey.

As for the Wild, outside of Suter and Brodin, there's a lot of question marks on that back end. Scandella/Stoner/Prosser all need to prove they belong imo. I think Ballard will bounce back, and Spurgeon will be fine so long as he doesn't get top 4 minutes even strength. But doesn't hurt to send Dumba back another year and see what player you get in Blum.
Holy ****balls. Logic.
