Though in the shadow of Suter and Weber, Blum has been consistently getting better at the NHL level
Blum has been playing behind some of the best defensemen the NHL has to offer, and yet, he seems to be holding his own.
With limited action, Blum has proven at both the AHL and NHL levels that he belongs in the pros.
Given his ice-time in Nashville will always take a hit with Weber and other experienced defensemen in the system, maybe a change of scenery could be just the thing.
He will most likely not become a high-end defensemen like the following candidates, but he could certainly provide some youthful depth on a team that is lacking at the defenseman position.
Holmgren couldn't snatch Nashville's best, but maybe he could snatch Blum instead?
Doubtful, moving on...
