Because Dumont will likely never play more than 9 minutes a night and you have 5-6 forwards left to vote on in our pool who still have the potential to be top 9 guys.

Was Engqvist a better prospect 2 years ago than Bennett, Nygren or Bournival? Not necessarily. He was much closer to the league, even playing 4th line minutes and doing very well in the AHL, but he wasn't a better prospect. Not saying Dumont is exactly like Engqvist, just putting some context behind this line of thinking.
