  • J.P Dumont to sign with Nashville Predators

    The speculation is finally over and as expected J.P Dumont will not be a Montreal Canadien.

    Le Journal de Montreal and RDS report that Dumont has signed a deal with the Nashville Predators. A team that wasn’t high on most peoples radar screen since Nashville is nowhere close to Quebec or the Northeast where Dumont apparently wanted to start his family.

    The terms are undisclosed [update: $4.5 Million/2 years] as of now but probably include the best financial offer Dumont received as it was rumored he had offers from strong teams like Detroit and Ottawa.

    Money aside, Dumont will be a good fit in a speedy and dangerous Nashville offence which now includes Jason Arnott, Steve Sullivan, Paul Kariya, Josef Vasicek and David Legwand.

  • J.P Dumont headed to the Northeast?

    The latest rumor is on J.P Dumont is that he will be headed to a team in the Northeast Division, but it won’t be the Habs.

    Dumont has not received an offer from the Canadiens but has had serious offers from 3 other Northeastern teams.

    Toronto? Ottawa? Boston? Or does a lighter offer from Buffalo count as a serious one?

    Who will it be?

    If you can’t live in Montreal close to your new baby and family then where would you live? As close as you possibly can in another Northeastern hockey city. It seems plausible.

    Now imagine the french media ranting after Dumont scores an overtime winner for the Senators over the Canadiens.
