The Pittsburgh Penguins announced forward Pascal Dupuis underwent successful surgery on the torn ACL in his right knee.

Dupuis was injured on December 23 against Ottawa and it delivered a blow to the Penguins’ top line. It’s believed he’ll miss the rest of the season because of the injury.

Sure, Sidney Crosby and Chris Kunitz have done just fine without Dupuis, the spot on the right side of that line has seen a few players get their chance to run with them. The latest has been call-up Brian Gibbons. He has four goals and nine points in 19 games.

When Dupuis was injured, he had seven goals and 20 points.

    When was the last time there was an unsuccessful knee surgery? Hopefully he will be able to return to 100%.

    With Dupuis most likely missing the rest of the season and Letang appears to possible be in the same boat Shero now fines himself with some work to do and cap space to do it.

    I wonder who the Penguins are going to trade for?

    Shero needs to find a suitable winger for Crosby cause Brian Gibbons won’t win to a Stanley Cup. It would be nice if they could find the next James Neal. Who that would be is beyond me. All I really want is for the Penguins to win the Stanley Cup again that’s all!!!!

      They find a way to bring in a mercenary, like Vanek, to play next to Sid for the playoffs, perhaps?
