I know it will never happen, but I'd like to see Bennett moved up to Sid's RW and Dupuis with Sutter. Not because Dupuis is ineffective, but because he brings more in a 3rd line role, whereas I think Bennett's puck skills would give Sid's line more options and take some of the possession pressure off Sid when matched up against a top shutdown force like Boston.
I fully agree with the rest of your post but I refuse to believe Pascal freaking Dupuis intentionally deflected that puck to Sutter lol
I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who that was unintentional. If Crosby makes that play, I'll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he meant to do it, but not Dupuis.
I agree, the atttempt at the puck was intentional, but the direction that resulted was total fluke. However, as they always say, you make your own luck. Credit Dupuis for hustling and smarts to be at that spot to begin with. Hockey is a game of inches, and the hockey gods decreed it would be so....
