That was hilarious. Blum doesn't have the mental makeup to work through his defiencies and prove himself. I remember lots of comments about his disinterestedness (If that's a word) when he was told to attend prospects camp after he played so well during the Preds playoff run a couple of years ago. The perception was that he was too good to learn anything from the camp.

Suter and Wilson went through similar phases in their development but both have worked through the coaching staff's criticism. Blum's response reminds me of another SoCal kid (UT's former QB Tyler Bray) with tons of physical ability who nonchalantly shrugged off constructive criticism. I doubt either will make meaningfull contributions to their professional teams.
