Good news there. Even though he didn't look like he was in real bad shape when he left the ice, those kinds of hits are always scary.

I'm just glad no one is complaining about it being a dirty hit.

I think it was overly rude.

I understand you need to protect yourself, and if you are bent way over or curled when you're likely to get checked, you're taking more risk. Dumont took that risk to try to make a play.

The checker has to finish his check to make sure Dumont can't stay in the play. But it sure looks as if the instinct, when Robidas sees that Dumont is going to slip most of the blow of the check, is to curl his arm up and curl his shoulder in to make sure he gets him solid. Normally that's standard. But he had time (ok, a split second) to know he was going to crush J.P. with that move, he could've pulled the blow. His forearm conveniently happened to be firmly at jaw height with something behind it.

I wouldn't say "dirty" but it was stronger then it should have been. And if the NHL says it's your own responsibility to avoid head blows to the other player...

I guess in the first game you let the league know "don't be trying to drive around me with your head down..."

Mine too...

Personally, after the Burrows flying ninja-kick "check" Dumont took to the head last season and the lasting effects, I hope that the team holds him out a minimum of 7 days before clearing him for contact no matter what he says or does.

Dumont was clearly not the same after that hit last season and only after a long summer off did he appear to be the player we all know he is capable of being again...

from listening to Belak tonight and reading between the lines, it sounded to me like JP hasn't been able to ride the bike without a headache.
Did anyone listen to 104.5 and hear it?

Triston Grant has been recalled from Milwaukee to play Thursday night against the Avs. Assume that Ward is on the outside looking in for Thursday night, hopefully he returns for Saturday.

Grant gives us a much lacked skill from opening night in Dallas. He will serve as an agitator, be expected to be aggressive on the forecheck, and bang away at the Avs defense. I thought that was sorely lacking from the first game and will only serve to benefit the team if done so without leading a parade to the penalty box...

Wow. When I heard chatter on here, during camp, that Grant was doing well and could be in line for a call up during the season if we were short on toughness, I thought you all were nuts. I figured Grant had about a 5% chance of playing for the Preds this year.

I hope Dumont can recover fully. Keep him out as long as it takes to feel fine during hard exercise.

So who sits: Belak or Guite?

Will he miss a lot of games or is it only a preventive scratch ?

I got him in my fantasy draft too ...

The team has been rather quiet about it really, so we don't really know much about it.

So we're looking at:

Sullivan-Arnott-Hörnqvist
Santorelli-Legwand-Erat
Jones-Goc-Guite
Belak-Smithson-Grant

Yes but you can't win them all. The season is a war, battles are faught on all fronts during the season, not just on the goal scoring front.

Jordin Tootoo's physical play and forechecking are also valuable tools for this team.

Not sure why we bother trying to argue this point with people...yeah if he had a game that was more rounded he'd be more valuable but as an agitator/physical presence he is arguably one of the best in the game. And I guarantee that the players on the other team LOVE seeing his name on the injured/scratched list.

But he doesn't score enough goals......

The fans aren't the only ones who know when Tootoo is on the ice, I promise opposing players know too. I can't imagine Joe Sacko telling his players last night to keep their heads up because Triston Grant or Wade Belak are on the ice. I think Tootoo is the only relevant energy/disturbing player we have. He creates room for other players, creates power plays, and creates turnovers while he is on the ice; and he does it without committing too many turnovers himself (unlike Belak and Grant). If the worst thing an agitator does is try to drive the puck through the goalies chest, then he is probably pretty good at what he does. Oh wait. . .this thread is about Dumont.

He's useful. I don't think the agitator role makes all that much difference on whether we win games or not. I don't care all that much if he scores goals, but I would like our team to score on the plus side overall when he's out there. I used to like Tootoo's game. I'm just a bit tired of the hype. Sure, having him back would be important because otherwise we skate Grant or Belak. I get that part.

I think he's useful, my comment about winning games was just tongue in cheek. But something last year made me think he was costing us more then he was helping. Of course, that's supposed to be good as long as the other team is agitated that they outscored us. I guess.
