I really wanted the Ducks to take Blum being that he grew up in Orange County and played his youth hockey for a team my brother and I played many times. I've read up a lot about this kid and he sounds like he'll be a sound d-man as long as he fills out a bit. His skating style and transition game reminds me a bit of Scott Niedermayer though not nearly in the same range. If he can put on 20-25 pounds he'll be solid.

So treat him well because he's my new favorite prospect in the NHL and this gives me a reason to still root for the Preds even if Kariya signs elsewhere.

Oh and he also led the WHL in +/- playing on the Memorial Cup winning team. He also led all their d-men in points which includes two Ducks prospects that we are really high on so that's gotta be worth something.
