Nothing happened between those two.Avery made the comment about French Canadian players needing to take their masks/visors off.Since Dupuis is a Francophone......

I happen to agree with Avery.Denis Gauthier.Claude Lemieux

He's talking about the hit Denis Gauthier laid on Roenick when he was with the Kings, and Avery said something along the lines of it being "typical" for French Canadian players to take cheap shots, wear visors, and never back up their tough play by dropping the gloves. It wasn't a shot at Dupuis, it was a shot at all French Canadians.

Robitaille was a big disappointment. A guy who had consistently scored 40+ goals every season comes to NY and scores 20 both seasons.

Oh well, moving forward....
I saw him in Nashville and he was good..I was in favor of the Moore deal when it happened because I thought we could use an offensive upgrade at that position..but he just lost his game here, maybe he'll get it back with the Wild. I wouldn't be shocked.

Maybe both players can benefit from the Garden atmosphere and in turn help the team reconnect with the fans during this stretch of home games.
Good point ... I would agree that Dupuis can raise the emontial bar for any team. His offense will improve if he is given more ice time. He put up most of his points when
Demitra and Gaborik were out when he was promoted to the 2nd line with added powerplay time.

On the flip side ... He has a hard and heavy shot, but he misses often. Many times he just doesn't know when to shoot and when not to. His footwork seems to be clumsy at times and he puts himself out of scoring position too much. It can
be frustrating to watch him because he comes so close to getting that big goal.

I thought there was a fight or something between them or a dirty hit.

Seems to me like this trade was just a swap of players that could use a change of scenery. I think its a good move. The worst case scenario is that we are no worse of than before.

I like the trend that i believe i see developing here. It's still a bit early(two trades hardly constitutes a trend) but it looks like slats is trying to build a faster, more agressive team. With the new rules, the ice opens up a lot more and faster teams have an edge.

Now lets tackle that 2nd line C problem....

I've watched Dupuis play here quite a bit over the last few years and when he plays well he is a very decent 3rd line player. Responsible defensively and able to chip in some goals. That said he has been playing lousy this year. Clearly this is a "my problem for your problem" trade with the hope that a change of scenery might shake him up. Hall was a real disappontment for me. Dupuis is a better player. Good chance we win this deal.

Hall sucked and looked lost on this team. Good move. Hall gets dropped from the payroll, and if Dupuis dosen't step-up, or fit in, he's gone too.

I'm also glad that Sather is getting something done NOW to help this team. In years past, he'd always make a big deal a day or two before the deadline. If the Rangers want to have any chance at making the playoffs, they need to improve their lineup now and Sather is doing that. We're going to have to finish this month on a high note in order to give us hope going into March/April.

I'm really happy with this trade. Value wise it's a wash, and team wise it's a lateral move that might wind up working out well. No down side really. Dupuis was, in my opinion, a big part of the Wild's successful seasons. He's a good defensive player and PKer that I could see putting up decent numbers if paired with a good playmaker.

Wow, a third line of Cullen, Avery, and Dupuis. A lot of speed with a whole lot of missed nets.

This does have "problem for problem" trade written all over it, as somebody put it above.

This guy has a lot to offer, but he's been relegated to 2nd and 3rd line on a defense-minded Jacques Lemaire team for years.

He's got MAD speed, raw offensive talent and lots of energy. He seems to have consistency problems from what I'm reading and that can be frustrating.

Why not give him a bit of time with Straka and Jagr to see if anything develops?

Playing with Jagr has done wonders for many an "average" or under-achieving player. Dupuis was a 20 goal scorer a few years back (in Minny)

I have a feeling from some comments from the Wild fans that Dupuis has a similar skating style as Cullen. We could be seeing players all over the ice if they are put on the same line with Orts.

Sticks and bodies and gloves all over the rink.

I'm getting that impression also from reading some comments on him. Guess we will have to wait and see

Well the Adam Hall experiment is over, gotta admit that I am disappointed.

Dupuis is another guy who is in a similar boat in terms of missed potential, though Dupuis has done a little more than Hall has.

If he can play a third line role and generate his 10-15 goal he'll still bring value to the team.

Time will tell.

I'm probably one of the only Wild fans that thinks this. But I'm very saddened to see Dupuis go. He was a very fast skater, he missed the net a lot, but all of his goals were pretty. He was our BEST penalty killer (some Wild fans will say Wes Walz is). My only problem with him was he was offsides a lot. Nothing too damaging or non-fixable.

Good bye, and good luck Dupuis.

On the other hand, I think this trade is a perfect fit for the Wild as well. Hall played college at Michigan State right? I could see him feeling right at home in the US hockey heartland.
