Too many fans think that only their team is on the ice at any given time.
I'd say Callahan is easily better than Dupuis. Keep in mind he was playing with a torn labrum the entire year. Callahan has consistently been on pace for over 20 goals a year since 2008, his first real impact year with no generational center on his line. Dupuis? He's hit the mark of 20 goals or over twice in his career. Aside from this year in a shortened season, and last year on a prolific offensive pittsburgh team, he has NEVER been over even a 20 goal pace. Not to mention Dupuis is 34 and Callahan is 28, and plays with either Malkin or Crosby most of the time.

You don't think Brassard is better than Dupuis either?

That guy is so overrated it's unbelievable.

Hagelin, Brassard and Zuccarello also didn't disappear the second our team's top forwards in Stepan and Nash were shut down. They don't rely on them to produce, they produce themselves. I really don't get why it's so hard for everyone to see and admit that Kunitz and Dupuis rely on Crosby Malkin and Letang to produce offense. It's not huge mindblowing idea.

Also, take defensive core and goaltending into account. Your really think Pittsburgh has the horses back there to match us? Defense wins championships.

You get under Crosby and Malkin's skin a little bit and shut them down, you win. What's so hard to get?

How would you know if we have any offensive talent on the blueline when we have a coach that preaches getting the puck off the glass and out?
