I figure a 1-2 year contract at 800,000-1 million dollars loaded with incentives would be best. Then they go back to the table, figure out a new contract based around guys his age, what they making, this time fully sure that Dupuis is going to 1) hold up 2) be consistant 3) isn't going to be knocked out for a season with an injury.
See, that would be the logical approach to it. Unfortunately, the market dictates Dupuis getting what he asks for instead of some incentives. If Dupuis(or his agent, whatever) rejected an offer of 1 million plus incentives, he ought to be beat with a dumbass bat. Perform well and get your money.
