Ah, the Interwebs…
There is a rumor going around on the HFBoards that Jon Blum has been recalled to the Predators. Both Boullion and Suter are hurt, so a callup was probably imminent this week at some point.
I don’t like posting about rumors….I’d much rather be able to confirm them and go with that.
But I think it’s likely that the source is probably legit.
The guy spreading the rumor says he is from Blum’s hometown. Word may have traveled pretty quickly. Some of Blum’s other CA pals have been poor at keeping secrets in the past, and they have proven to be accurate after they leaked information on the HFBoards.
So we’ll see if there’s a press release tomorrow.
Blum has 8 goals and 26 assists in 54 games for the Admirals this season, and six of those goals were on the power play (including one Sunday evening). But he has been prone to bad decisions on defense of late, often times being bailed out by his defensive partners and goaltender.
So Roundtable….if this is true, how do you see this playing out for Blummer? Is he ready or is he going to get smushed?
