Blunden was a big, physical winger something the jackets do not have in excess. He was only a phone call away.
It seems like they are going to depend on a bunch of young guys - Brass, Calvert, Johansen, Atkinson etc and might need someone beside Boll to look after them.
Also it would be nice to have a big guy with some scoring touch around the net on a checking line. Blunden had 21 points in 37 games with 12 being goals.
