Dupuis is going to put up his points no matter where he plays. Sutter needs an upgrade on his line as much as Sid/Geno. Dupuis fits what he needs to a T. Monster forechecker and our second best defensive forward on the team.

You're going to get more from Bennett playing him with guys who can finish and set him up. We didn't call him up so he could replace TK. He's top 6 or back in WBS come postseason IMO.

DB will make sure Bennett's minutes are cut in tight games or when holding leads anyway. Zero trust in rookies.
