You can't just look at stats alone and draw conclusions from them...

That would imply there was a debate to begin with.

and I can see you don't possess any logic when presenting arguments. I have a better question,which player has elevated his game when our two most important players went out with injuries? and in opposition which player has become anonymous?

Why do you insist that i'm taking anything away from what Kennedy has done recently?

It just surprised me a little when I noticed Dupuis has 4 goals fewer than TK even after his play as of late.

End of story.

I don't think people's feelings towards Dupuis can really be classified as "hate". It's just become painfully apparent in Crosby's absence that he has no business being on the top 6. He's an excellent bottom 6 role player and penalty killer, but nothing beyond that. TK on the other hand in the last couple of months has managed to show that he does indeed have the skill level to merit a spot on the top 6, even without Sid or Geno providing him with service. TK's got the potential, whereas the limitations in Dupuis' game are pretty clear-cut.

I just wanted to put it out there that Dupuis isn't really that far off from Kennedy's #'s.

Dupuis' TOI is skewed a little for the PK.
When we needed players to step up, the emergence of Tyler Kennedy and the collapse (for the most part) of Pascal Dupuis has been pretty telling, IMO.

Sidney Crosby has willed Dupuis to the points he has got over the last 2 seasons. Kennedy has produced similarly in a much more limited role.

I don't think people hate Dupuis either. I just think people felt that there were other guys more deserving, and a lot of us backed Tyler Kennedy. He's proving that if given more opportunity/responsibility, he can answer the bell.

Evaluating the two has everything to do with putting their numbers in context.

If you are going to ignore the fact that Dupuis has played 2 more minutes per game, and spent that time being centered by the best player in the world instead of a Letestu/Staal split, you're being willfully ignorant.

Dupuis scored twice against the Wings and twice against the Devils. most of the time he's where the offense is going to die. this if you watch the actual games,if you go by numbers,sure...
