Doing it when two of the best centers were out that year, yeah it does mean something because you would need to see him play, or actually know what you are talking about to know he was a man possessed when he scored 20 that year. He was doing his usual "I'm going to check hard at both ends" schtick as he usually does, very well mind you, but then he was setting up plays, scoring, drawing penalties, he was just unreal and it's one of the reasons the Pens are now seeing him as a top 6 option now that he's healthy again.

He has 2.7 shots on goal a game, is solid at both ends of the rink, physical, fast, and has 20 goal potential, which he has proven capable of.

3rd line scorers are a little more valuable than you think. Is Dupuis just a 3rd line scorer too? Last year, he was doing some great things without Sid.
