Jonathan Blum

Blum could be a top 4 dman. With a change of scenery and a fresh start he could develop. With NSH depth in dmen he has the most value in the pool of trade options.

Poile said as of right now he is trying to trade his rights. He may not be given a QO. So knowing this, why offer anything?

Has Blum really fallen that far that he won't even get a QO? What happened to him?

Wow, really? This seems crazy to me. But I guess he could get the Filatov/Grachev treatment. Traded for a 3rd or 4th at the draft or what have you.

Why would we trade anything of value for a player who might not even be qualified. If they want something, give them a late round pick to beat the free agency period he will have the ability to shop his services.

This pretty much

I would give them a 5th or 6th to get him. If they don't want that, I will take the chance they don't qualify him and he can become a FA.

Playing in a organization that he doesn't fit in. Being forced to play a style of hockey that is not his game.

Sad, but a 4th-5th probably gets it done.

Granted I haven't seen him play in a long time, I thought he looked really good when he first came up and then poof, he's not getting a QO. Has his play fallen off that much or is he a victim of numbers? Probably a combination of both.

I've always liked him and had some interest for the Isles. Maybe not so much anymore it seems.

Funny username by the way. 'Pepper needs new shorts!'

I wouldn't be surprised if that's where he ends up. Seems like a good fit.

Mason Raymond for Jonathan Blum. Raymond is a decent 2nd or 3rd line winger. Canucks have too many forwards like Raymond and could use another right-handed shooting defenseman.

If not traded I'd out good money on him getting a QO polie also said if Blum was kept on our d would most likely be complete.. So sounds like plan b is to put him In the line up

There is almost no chance that Blum DOESN'T get a QO. IMO a 2nd would probably get you his rights and that's probably fair. Maybe a high 3rd for a team at the top 1/3rd of the draft.

Agreed...remember Blum in his draft year decent handling puck, good first pass. Thought he would be decent defenseman.

I hope we trade him for something, because he doesn't fit here anymore. He just seems like the game hasnt slowed down for him yet, and he constantly makes mental errors. He has shown a good bit of promise in stretches, and then poof, he is the biggest liability that we could ice the next year. He isn't strong enough to win battles on the boards, so he needs to play sound positional hockey, but he just gets lost and leaves his partner out to dry.

I think he will come around, but we can't sit and wait for him when he is getting passed up and out played by the Victor Bartleys of the world. His cieling is still high, but somebody is going to have to let him play decent NHL minutes to get up to the speed of the NHL game. Trotz won't do that when we have others who are further along who need those minutes. Its a numbers game at this point, and unfortunately it looks like he is expendable with all of our depth/signings of late.

I really liked Blum when he played for the Giants - would the Preds consider Blums rights for David Booth?
