He was a highly touted prospect and a guy that I actually saw a lot of (back in the days when I actually paid attention to junior hockey). It's disappointing to see that he hasn't become a regular in the NHL, but maybe the change of scenery, and the opportunity to play for a team thin on D, will turn things around for him.
I was disappointed to see this tidbit on the Our Crap For Your Stars ... I mean, Rumors and Trade board, especially that it is a 2-way deal. Blum would have been a very interesting (low) risk to take for first-pairing Phantom minutes.
