Perhaps I overstated my point a little......

The point that I was trying to make is generally if one of these players is a regular in your lineup then you are in trouble. It is hard to say that Dumont is better than players who were regulars on a Cup winning team when he has yet to even make the NHL. IMO Dumont is going to be primarily a career AHLer.

What makes me laugh is when a grinder like Dumont has a big game in the AHL this board is flooded with over exuberant posts about his potential. I love his work ethic and attitude but he doesn't have the size/skill/speed to be a quality NHLer.
