There is zero doubt in my mind Stempniak would make the Crosby line harder to defend than Dupuis.

I disagree. Crosby doesn't work well with other playmakers. Much more productive when he has linemates that are more shot-oriented.

Stempniak IS a great player though. Would be great on a lower line, Geno's line or Sutter's line would be more dangerous.
