I've been telling everyone that wasn't the case since day 1. Only that Sgt. Pepper fool doubted the "oil sand worker" scouting report of piss poor skating and marginal (being kind) hockey I.Q.

And yes, imo, Dumont is a "better" prospect than Thrower. We're talking about the bottom half, couldn't care less stretch of prospects anyway (where Nygren didn't belong from the get-go - as I believe I may also have been saying since day 1), but Dumont actually has some big league skills; he just isn't blessed with size. Thrower, on the other hand, has very little in the way of big league skills, but is blessed with size.
