Hartley is a fairly experienced coach, he is no moron. He knew what he had and what he needed
Why would he do such a trade if Bourret was such a stud and Dupuis a lame duck?
To some of you of amongst my critics - of course the answer is obvious. To me it's not.
From what I saw in Dupuis in Game 1 (and I have observed him with Wild before)
he would be have been an asset for us in the play offs. I certainly believe that he
would have brought us more short term (this season) than Callahan.
dupuis played 5/6 season's under Lemaire who I hold in high esteem. A player who lasts that long in Lemaire's team is
not a waste. If he didn't fit into OUR gameplan why did we take him in in the first place. Just to get rid of Hall????
Than Callahan? Ok, if you said Orr then I might have went with you but Callahan? No way dude! Callahan has been MONEY for us. He hits, skates hard, scores & plays with a lot of passion.
Cally is the man.
