Dumba at his best is a very, very good player. Pouliot hasn't really shown enough to be anywhere near making the team (good but not excellent like he needed to be) and he doesn't have the international resume that Dumba has. Besides, I get the feeling they want 2 RD for the last 3 spots and Reinhart is the guy that pretty much has that LD spot locked down.

I don't think Dumba surviving over Pouliot is that crazy. He's getting an extra game because of his track record with Hockey Canada, but he'll need to be out of this world today to make it.
