There is not much to say about Philippe Dupuis because he always seems to fly under the radar but as my game recaps showed over the last weeks of the season I LOVE his game. I was constantly upset about the lack of playing time Sacco gave Dupuis and I believe his work ethic and skill should have given him more playing time, along with a call up for Greg Mauldin. In any other season I believe Dupuis wouldve easily registered about 30 points from the 4th line for the Avs but with that horrid stretch not many Avs were able to put up any sort of impressive numbers.
Stay or Leave? Stay. 2 years 575 per year.
This is all wishful thinking on my part. Dupuis is a RFA so my hope is the Avs offer him a slight increase since he doesn’t deserve to receive less than Koci did last season, again. Although the Avalanche have guys who may make the club out of camp I also hope the Avalanche do not attempt to offer Dupuis a two way contract since I doubt he will accept that offer after spending a full year in the NHL.
