In all seriousness, Dupuis can't be signed to a long term deal. Too much money to tie up in a guy like that.
And therein lies he problem by signing Malkin. You'll lose more pieces than you'll gain.
With that signing comes a lot of changes I wouldn't want to make to a good roster.
If Dupuis were 10 years younger, he'd be worth that contract. There is a good chance he won't be the top-line force he is now 2 years into a 4 year extension. Why tie up that money when it can go to someone younger and better.
