Cheap viagra online Okay, cheap viagra online newest Ranger Pascal Dupuis isn’t as loose a cannon as Sean Avery, cheap viagra online but the 27-year-old forward comes to New York with his own brand of baggage.

Cheap viagra online Here is how John Dellapina of the “Daily News” describes Dupuis run-in with Minnesota Wild coach Jacques Lemaire.

Cheap viagra online “He [Dupuis] had fallen out of favor in Minnesota ever since a December practice during which an angry coach Jacques Lemaire barked at his team: ‘If you don’t want to practice, cheap viagra online leave!’ Dupuis actually left the ice and the speedy penalty-killer and one-time 20-goal scorer had been on the fourth line ever since.”

Cheap viagra online In his defense, cheap viagra online Dupuis has offered a different take on the situation in his discussions with the Rangers’ beat reporters.  Here is Dupuis’ version as written by Steve Zipay of “Newsday” a couple of days after the trade.

Cheap viagra online “We came back from the road from a seven-day road trip and I was sick on the road, cheap viagra online getting IVs before the games and stuff. Cheap viagra online I lost seven pounds on the trip, cheap viagra online” said Dupuis, cheap viagra online 27. Cheap viagra online “We flew in at night and played home the next day [Dec. Cheap viagra online 19], cheap viagra online and 10 minutes into the morning skate, cheap viagra online Jacques [Lemaire, cheap viagra online the coach] said, cheap viagra online ‘The guys that’s had enough right now, cheap viagra online you can take off, cheap viagra online or just stay and we’ll have a good practice and leave at the end.’ So I was sick and figured I’d keep my energy for that night, cheap viagra online so I left. Cheap viagra online Obviously, cheap viagra online the media didn’t take it like that. Cheap viagra online But it was no big deal in the room. Cheap viagra online Jacques didn’t mention anything about that. Cheap viagra online Three guys left: me, cheap viagra online Wes Walz and Brian Rolston.”

Cheap viagra online While Dupuis downplayed the incident, cheap viagra online the Unrestricted Free Agent still found his way from his coach’s chateau bow-wow to the trading block.

Cheap viagra online Despite the potential to add a few more gray hairs to coach Tom Renney, cheap viagra online Dupuis brings a solid two-way mentality to the table as President/GM Glen Sather shuffles around his role players. Cheap viagra online In acquiring Dupuis and Avery for Jason Ward and Adam Hall, cheap viagra online Sather has added some much needed grit and tenacity in Avery and some much needed defensive responsibility in Dupuis.

Cheap viagra online Dupuis is 6-foot-0 and weighs 199 pounds and can play both wings. Cheap viagra online He was signed as an undrafted free agent by the Wild and has played all 334 NHL games with Minnesota (67 goals and 74 assists). Cheap viagra online His best season came in 2002/2003 when he scored 20 goals and added 28 assists. Cheap viagra online In 48 games this season, cheap viagra online Dupuis has 10 goals (2 of them shorthanded) and 3 assists. Cheap viagra online He missed 7 games earlier in the season with a sprained left knee.

Cheap viagra online While Sather has not been able to solve the Rangers two biggest needs – a solid second-line center and a quarterback for the power play – he has done a good job in improving the overall roster without disrupting his every day lineup and without trading away one of the team’s elite prospects.
