I agree with Poile needing to look beyond loyalty to one player in this situation. His loyalty needs to be to the organization as a whole. I would expect him to discuss any buyout with Dumont first, and then give him the option of being involved in a trade so that he won't lose money. Looking into a trade if Dumont so desires or offering him a position within the organization after the buy out... that is essentially where any loyalty to Dumont should end. That's more than generous, and Dumont is smart enough to understand that right now he is hindering the progression of this team. If even us fans know that, in order to get back, Dumont has to go and he is still on the roster next season Poile's ability to make the hard decision is going to come under heavy fire. I love JP, but his time here should have been done a long time ago.
