I don't remember what we traded him for. I think it was Brett Festerling. Bad trade. I'd rather have Lapierre than White or Nokelainen.
I thought he was marginal as a PK guy. He will probably cost too much to sign as a #4 center(over 1 mil) so I think they'll stick with Dumont/White next year.

What got him traded was that he wasn't ok with a smaller role, maybe he accepts it now but he was a malcontent at that time.
