Big Statement By Ownership

February 1, 2008

From another name in the rumor mill to a foundational player in the Preds future. JP Dumont has played all parts this past week in the press and I, as a Pred fan, could not be happier in the role he is ultimately cast.

There is no denying that JP has been red hot and the Preds had to be fielding calls from interested GM’s wondering about the availability of the first line winger. Following last night two assist night Dumont has pushed his point scoring streak to 16 games.

Signing Dumont makes some big statements from ownership.

1. We are not going to be sellers at the deadline.

2. We are willing to spend the money on talent (this makes the third in-season extension with the others being Legwand and Tootoo).

3. These Preds mean business

One person that cannot be forgotten
in all this is Preds captain Jason Arnott who has been imploring ownership to step up and get a deal done to keep Dumont. Arnott has stated publicly that JP makes him a better player and this team a better team. Looks like they listened Cap.

Solid Win last night by the boys
. Despite Columbus giving theme a scare the Preds were able to hold off the Bluejackets and win 4-2 leap frogging them in the standings…which is just what we needed to do.

The playoff type games don’t stop for the Preds as the Phoenix Coyotes come calling tomorrow night to the Sommet. The Yotes recently put a scare into the Red Wings before succumbing and have been playing great hockey lead by waiver claim goalie Bryzgalov.

  1. Um…not Nabakov. Bryzgalov. The other west-coast goalie that moved this year. Nabokov is still in San Jose.

    Agreed. Three big signings by the new owners (Leggy was right as the sale went through and they approved it). Just hope that the momentum keeps going on and off the ice.

    Good time to be a Preds fan (and goodness knows we haven’t had many in a while).


  2. That was me trying to get a quick post up. I get all of the ‘ov’s’ mixed up…it’s like living in the south with all the ‘villes.’

    Thanks for pointing that out!
