Probably pair with Suter and they'll have a stellar 10 years together.

A two-way deal for Blum. How much time do you think he'll spend in Iowa?

Yeah, a two way deal. I hope Wild fans aren't all thinking he's the next bobby orr.

No, we're hoping that he finds a spot as the #5 or #6 defenseman. If not, he plays in Iowa.

Low-risk, high-reward.

More like low risk, low to medium reward. Blum has been awful for two years now, and I don't see him having the work ethic or desire to turn it around.

I wonder if they'll ever develop their own defenseman or just keep getting our cast offs.

I can't believe that Blum's value fell so far that he couldn't even bring back a late round draft pick. Even Parros brought a draft pick AND a prospect!

Of course I don't know what Poile was asking or what he was willing to take. But I have to think at some point someone offered a 7th round pick at the very least.

Oh well. Good luck Blum.

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.

Blum struck me early on as a player who had an attitude problem. The way he carried himself at team events etc., gave me the impression that he was above all that. He also seemed to be unwilling to do the work to improve his game. I am irritated that another one of our first round picks netted us nothing though.

Following Blum on Twitter can tell you a lot about him too. I unfollowed him months ago. After that, seeing him make those comments doesn't surprise me in the least. I hope Minnesota has fun with him but I doubt it.

You all should've just traded us Brodin for Blum.

“I’m just thrilled to get a fresh start. Things didn’t go as well the last year and a half with the Preds. I wasn’t able to play my game there, play on the power play, play more than 14 minutes…whatever I played last year…. So I’m looking to come into camp at the beginning of the year and earn my ice time….and be able to play an offensive game, a puck moving game, and not just focus on being a shutdown guy. When I was in Nashville, I was playing top 4 minutes, playing against teams’ best players every night. It doesn’t suit my game…”
You have got to be kidding me. Blum playing top4 doesn't suit his game? Basically admitting he sucks? Complaining about not getting PP time. You have to earn your minutes kid.

Haha playing against teams' best lines doesn't suit his game. Way to prop yourself up there, Blum. Though I think it was painfully obvious that trying to be a good defensemen wasn't your game.

Maybe Blum was trying to imply he was rushed? What strange comments...

If you think you're getting a reward from Blum... you're going to be disappointed.

Who knows, maybe a new voice telling him how terrible his work ethic is will do him some good, but I don't think he would know what a hard-working professional athlete looks like if one bit him on the nose.

Actually, he'd be the last to tell you that...it'd be quite the opposite.

Reading comprehension isn't too strong here...
He said he doesn't want to play a strictly shut down role he had almost no offensive zone starts in Nashville and that's how you set up and offensive defenseman up to fail
