Dupuis is just a model of consistency every game. His puck management is sublime and he rarely blows an assignment in his end. Top that off with balls to the walls hustle and you have a hell of a hockey player. If only he was born with softer hands, he would be perfect.
to echo this, I was all over 44 last year, I thought he was terrible, I thought he was washed up, but he's been good, maybe pairing with martin, maybe, it was more to that injury, still msome occasional lapses, but it is 180 degrees turn
