Good news, it's gonna be awhile for him right?

wej20 04-04-2013 10:07 AM

guess that's why Kileen was traded. Looking forward to hearing some reports on him from the guys who watch the Baby Pens.

Sivek 04-04-2013 10:08 AM

Excited to see if he's going to be called Rupper or Ruppy or maybe both.

Probably. But I suspect he'll be given a chance at the camp at the start of the new season.

maybe one day we can see a Despres - Ruopp pairing and call it Elmert and Ruopper

How do you say his last name? Is it "Ru - opp" or is it just "Rupp" or "Ropp"? Anyway, hope he turns into the bruiser our D can use.

Jacob 04-04-2013 10:49 AM

Annndd boom goes the dynamite.

deakka 04-04-2013 10:52 AM

How does our contract situation look?

Can we even sign any more of the FA prospects like Straka or the some college prospect?

Fire Shero* 04-04-2013 10:53 AM

What's the deal with calling Despres Elmer? Is it because the logo for Elmer's glue also has eyes freakishly far apart?

it's more catchy that Despregasus!

Possible Orpik replacement, at some point. (we can hope)

Ruopper is a thumper.

He is nasty, and ill tempered. Pen's fans will love him.

don't know much about any pens prospects let alone this one. looking through youtube, looks like he's not afraid to drop the gloves at all.

Ruu-opp.

Two syllables...

Good signing. Shero is very high on this kid.

I guess you could say he's a younger version of Deryk Engelland.

I don't know but I prefer Ropp, Roppster or Roppasuarus Rex. Pietrangelo changed the pronunciation of his name so Ruopp should do it too. He is therefore... Ropp.

I imagine, like Samuelsson and probably D'Agostino, and Strait & Bortuzzo before them, Ruopp will probably spend the full 3 seasons maturing and becoming a solid all-around defender in WBS. He'll be ready to take Engo's spot by that point, hopefully.

Le Magnifique 66 04-04-2013 02:31 PM

Good for him, at least Shero got who he wanted in the Michalek trade

Malkinstheman 04-04-2013 03:56 PM

Hows his postitional play and skating?

Merc29 04-04-2013 03:58 PM

Well the guy can take a hit

Zen Arcade 04-04-2013 04:04 PM

He's definitely the meanest guy in the Pens' prospect pool.

What I like isn't necessarily how much he fights, but why he fights as much as he does. It's usually because he just leveled someone with a massive hit.

I hope he gets some games in WBS, I'm looking forward to watching him play.
