Bottom line, while people - like the guy you are responding to really don't value Dupuis much based on his comments, he is working out very well when paired with Sid and Kunitz. Why on earth split that up? Chemistry amounts to something. Dupes busts his ass every shift.

Stempniak would be a perfect second/third line floater - could be an asset for either line. I would welcome him coming to Pittsburgh. Again, no need to be foolish with a major move. A subtle move is all this team needs.
