Budgeting for J.P. Dumont

From John Glennon at the Tennessean,

Said Dumont: “The contract stuff is not really in my hands. We would definitely like to stay here, but we’ll see. If it happens, it happens. Hopefully it will.’‘

The only question regarding a re-signing of Dumont would be money.  The Predators already have some relatively large salaries on the books for next season — Jason Arnott ($4.5 million), Legwand ($4.5 million), Steve Sullivan ($3.2 million), Marek Zidlicky ($3.2 million) and Chris Mason ($3 million).

Assuming Poile still plans to re-sign the key restricted free agents, will Dumont’s next salary fit the budget? Dumont is paid $2.5 million, but after posting a career-best 66 points last season and assuming he stays on course for 60 points this season, he’ll be due more money in the future.
