While I agree that paying Dumont to play a bottom-six role is a waste of his talents and our limited financial assets, due to his NMC, he's not going anywhere for the time being...

Knowing that he was getting any guarantees from the team at the end of last season except for the fact that they would honor his contract, JP didn't lounge around the pool all summer...he acknowledged that his game had slipped and spent the whole summer training to bulk up, strengthen his stride, and prepare for whatever the team threw at him this year.

I don't know where he'll start in the lineup, but he'll be there and after watching him at camp the past two weeks, my bet is that as long as he stats healthy...he'll finish the season higher up on the depth chart than where he begins next week...
