Who The F*** Is Philippe Dupuis?

Apparently this guy.

Well basically, he's a better Tim Brent.  Now, some people have already argued the contrary based on faceoff %s (Dupuis - 46.2%, Brent - 52%) among other things. Now I could delve into Corsi ratings, QCOMPs, and more advanced stats, but looking over their numbers I found a few basic ones that I feel tell a big story.

First, time on ice. Brent - 11:39 ATOI over 79 games; Dupuis 9:07 ATOI over 70 games. So Brent played over 2 1/2 minutes more per game than Dupuis.

Second, shots. Brent - 60; Dupuis - 101. In 240 less minutes of game time, Dupis had 41 more shots than Tim Brent.

Third, shooting %. Brent - 13.3%; Dupuis - 5.9%. Being mostly luck, you gotta figure next season Tim Brent's shooting % will go down, and Dupuis' will go up.

All considered, it seems like Philippe Dupuis finds a way to get a lot of pucks on the net and with a little luck, he'll contribute a lot more offensively than did Brent last season.

I give this signing the SkinnyFish Stamp of Approval.
