I don't mind, AK for anything fits with AK for JP Dumont and maybe Nashville's 1st also that would be great.

I like JP Dumont. I'd be happy if we get him.

Nashville doesn't have a 1st, due to the Mike Fisher trade.

Dumont was scratched for today's game vs Columbus.

I'd MUCH rather have AK and I also want him traded. If trade for Dumont we basically get the same story with AK, except we pay more for a guy who is 33 years old. There is no REASON to make that trade. I'd rather stick with AK at that rate, and hope he reaches his potential than take a chance on JP FREAKING DUMONT.

17 points, $4 million cap hit until the end of next season. Too risky to assume he'll regain his form if we acquire him.

Nashville doesnt have a first. Gave it to Sens for Fisher.
If anything its overpaid player for overpaid player trade (AK46 for Dumont)
Both have shown flashes of brilliance, but this year for both of them is just a bit of a disappointment.

32 is hardly old anywhere but on HFB. Plus he only has one year on his contract after this one.

ever since Burrows laid Dumont out, he hasn't been right.

Do you want to pay a 33 year old next year 4 million dollars who on pace for about 25 pts?

Yah but he has had a significant decline in production and isn't getting along with Trotz because of his compete level in all three zones.

in his last 4 years from

07-08: 72 points 80 games
08-09: 65 points 82 games
09-10: 45 points 74 games
10-11: 17 points 60 games

Big red flag in the last two seasons.

There is no promise that he will regain his form. Here we are trading a young problem for an old problem. It's just NOT worth it.

In comparison to the Latendresse & Pouliot trade where we exchanged problems, atleast both were very young and still had enough time to reach their potentials.

Honestly, I even doubt that Dumont would be able to handle any of the pressure, let alone be a "star" francophone player in MTL.

Same here and I'm not even a fan.

He has no points in 12 games, has anyone thought maybe this is why he is scratched? You know in other cities it's not uncommon for unproducing vets to get benched for lack of production..

AK for Dumont would be brutal.

Please don't do that PG.

I'd prefer to take a wild guess on Kostitsyn than to trade him for Dumont, but that being said I have no problem having two on the team.

Why not? When he signed with Nashville he stated he really wanted to play for the Canadiens but Bob Gainey didn't even call his agent. I would think it would rejuvenate him.

The risk of Dumont continuing his poor play outweighs the possibility he'd get rejuvenated and return to form. I think there are safer bets than him out there.

Can't they push for Dumont + rights to Radulov? Cause I'd go for that
