J.P. staying in Nashville

ATLANTA -- J.P. Dumont was going to be a big name on the trading block this month. Instead, he's now a big name in Nashville.

The Predators signed the former Sabres forward to a four-year, $16 million contract. It's a nice a nice raise from the $2.5 million he was getting this year. The Sabres allowed Dumont to become a free agent two summers ago when they declined to accept the $2.9 million contract awarded by an arbitrator.

Dumont was set to become an unrestricted free agent in July.
