I'm a bit split on this signing. If Rypien can play a full season for once, then I like it, as the guy is a fighting machine, and I think he has more skill than some people give him credit for. I don't think an Alex Burrows-type explosion is in his future, but I do think, if healthy, Rypien can bring the type of game to the bottom six that it lost when Burrows graduated to top-line duties. 10 - 15 goals wouldn't be out of the question. He could score 12 against Calgary alone!
Of course, if injuries persist, I don't see how they could bring him back when this contract is up.
