The Pens getting Dupuis as a "throw in" on the Hossa trade.

Since the trade Dupuis has actually been one of the highest scoring players at even strength, in two seasons ago he cracked the top ten and last year he had the highest ES goal total of any player in the league last year. This was in a year where Staal and Sullivan were his primary line mates.

He finished last season on an 18 game scoring streak, longest in the NHL. Only Mario and Sid have longer streaks in a Pens uniform.

He's one of the pens hardest workers, a great Pker, a locker room leader according to the press in pittsburgh and one of the more under rated players in the game. And the funny thing is I remember reading an article on espn during the playoffs last year that basically said that he and coach DB didnt get along at first and how DB used to bench him during the year they one the cup.
