And I'd rather just keep Dupuis than sign Stempniak for 3 million. It gives us some added flexibility, and Dupuis is a free agent after this year. Plus you can throw Dupuis in pretty much anywhere, 3rd line to 1st, and on the first PK unit.
You have to find 3 million in cap space.

There is no way, IMO, that Stempniak is worth 3 million. We all thought Poni getting 3.2 was bad, but Stempniak getting 3 million when his play hasn't been close to Poni's over the last few seasons is ridiculous.
