Winger for sale!!!


How much would you pay to re-sign Dupuis? This seems to be a question that comes up between my friends, family, and me. His production is at an all time high with his 38 points in a shortened season (20g, 18a), and 8 points this postseason (league best 6 goals). Not to mention last season total of 59 points (25g, 34a), so the reason why i am so weary of signing him is his age. He is 34 which i understand is not Jager old, but for about 75% of the players in the league he is near the end. Its hard for me to want to spend big money on him because well how good will he be when his speed is gone? I am not saying that his only asset is his speed, but can his game survive without it? I love Duper he is a great part of the team and has been consistant and deserves to get a pay raise, but at what cost are we willing to keep him? Is he worth say 3 to 3.5 million now? In my opinion yes he is at this very moment, but the question is would he be worth that 3 or 5 years from now? I am just wandering what everyone else's opinion might be?
