The following quotes indicate Duguay's versatility, stating he can play all three forward positions.

Just one year later, the team, led by the likes of 37-yeaer-old Phil Esposito, advanced to the Stanley Cup finals where they lost in five games to the powerhouse Montreal Canadiens.

By now Duguay was firmly entrenched as a fan favourite in New York. The love affair lasted six years, and although Duguay had a 40-goal season in 1981-82, the team was never able to reach the heights achieved during that 1979 run to the Cup finals.

He has a quick deceptive shot that netted him a career high of 40 goals in the 1981-82 season and won him a spot on the All-Star team.

But make no mistake about Ron Duguay. He does not eat quiche. He can take care of himself and he went back at Bob Nystrom and, later in the third period, he challenged the Islander bench. It took guts...and the crowd loved it. The fans loved Ron Duguay this night and they hated Bob Nystrom.

Duguay drew a lot of blood from Poulin and 17 minutes in penalties from referee Dave Newell.
