Both Filpulla and Dupuis are better than any wing we currently have, and, with the exception of Wilson, it ain't even close.
I agree, though neither are better than the Wilson we saw this year, we'll just have to see if the same Wilson shows up for next year. People can say Dupuis is a product of Crosby, but he did produce without him during Crosby's injuries, just not quite as much. Dupuis is speedy, has decent hands and gives 110% each and every shift. He's also great on the PK. I'd love to add him honestly.

Filpulla has skill and is decent in the D-zone. He also might improve his stats with more playing time. All that being said, it really isn't hard at all to be an upgrade over our current wingers...
