DD may not be elite talent, but he sure seems to have a knack of getting the best out of his wingers. Cole, Patch, Vanek, Gallagher..

I mean, come on. Cole had a career season playing with the guy. Patch has never produced consistently with another center, and Vanek is clearly clicking with the guy.

There's a reason Dupuis is playing with Crosby; and it's not because he has 1337 hockey talent.
Getting the most out of wingers who have scored throughout their careers without DD? C'mon.

I can understand people saying DD works well iwth Vanek and Max. But to say he gets the most out of them than anyone has is an outright lie. Vanek, Cole, Pacioretty, Gallagher have all produced without DD.

Dupuis is far better than DD. DD is more like a Kyle Wellwood. Nothing more, nothing less. Dupuis is a very good hockey player.

Is Max a product of DD? Is Vanek a product of DD? Is Cole a product of DD? Did you forget Cole being trash last year?
