I'm not defending Dupont nor am I suggesting Sean Kuraly is remotely a 2nd line NHL player, but 2nd line in Boston isn't exactly a juggernaut last I checked. We have TWO players capable of being called 2nd line NHL players, if you exclude the obvious 1st line studs. Sean Kuraly seems to me to be at least as capable as any of the other riff-raff we've thrown next to Kejci-DeBrusk this season. He may not have the hands or supposed talent of a guy like Donato, for example, but he's a much better pro at this point. And he makes a bigger impact than Heinen on a nightly basis. So honestly, why fight the point here? I actually think KPD's point here might be tongue-in-cheek. I read this to say "The Bruins management seems so apathetic about adding real 2nd line talent to this team that they may as well try Sean Kuraly there given his ability to step up in big spots.". Frankly I'm not sure that's so absurd. He's earned the chance over guys like Donato and Heinen.
