Maybe. But when there's a need teams are willing to pay a price. Tampa traded a good prospect in Carter Ashton for freakin' Keith Aulie last trade-deadline. Dumoulin is not much worse (if not better actually) than Despres, he's just lacking NHL experience right now. I think he'd fit like a glove and could help Tampa right off the bat.

I'd understand if they wouldn't want to do it, but I think it could be a win-win for both teams.
