Safe to say this is a 2-way contract?

before anyone asks

Quote:
TORONTO - Philippe Dupuis was teased about whether he and his ‘brother’ Pascal will be getting together while the Penguins are in Toronto.

“Don’t think so,” the Leafs winger replied with a grin.

Unlike the reunion of Luke Schenn and Brayden Schenn earlier in the week in Philly, the Dupuis boys aren’t related, despite outward appearances.

“We’re both forwards from Laval (Que.), and we have dark hair,” agreed Philippe. “I also wore No. 9 for awhile (Pascal’s number) and that added to the confusion. But I’m always having to explain he’s not my brother.”

Both were born in April, but there is a six-year age difference and Pascal is the far more accomplished with almost 700 games and a Stanley Cup with Pittsburgh in 2009. Philippe only made the NHL full-time last season in Colorado.

“I met Pascal once when I was about 13 and had a cousin on his junior team,” Philippe said. “I can’t believe he’d remember me. But now that we’re both playing in the East, there might be more mix-ups.”

Pa. Dupuis and Ph. Dupuis are gonna be the new Sedins.

even though they're not related and Philippe will most likely play in WBS.

He's a 4th liner who can skate and check, and was alright in his own zone. I didn't mind him on the Leafs, but I doubt he gets much (if any) time with the Pens.

Shero is seriously trolling Crosby right now.

Will he be taking Adams job eventually? Read somewhere he was 4th in the league in takeaways when he played with Colorado.

Maybe our 4th line will be:

Free agency has been a pretty drab time for us lately.

Nice depth signing, doesn't particularly address our needs.

I know people aren't happy with this after the day we had, but it's a depth signing. A guy who gives it his all, who'll likely just be a depth guy for WBS.

Nothing more than organizational depth with a good deal of NHL experience.

WBS gets even stronger.
