That price seems like overpayment to me, though admittedly I'm not the biggest fan of Rupp. His play wasn't all that impressive this year and he consistently took terrible penalties. It's hard to be a player with positive value when you consistently put your team at a disadvantage and don't make up for it in other areas. Then again he is a good locker room guy, can be an intimidating physical presence, and has decent skills for a fourth liner. I'm just not sure I'd have paid as much as Shero did for him.

I wonder if this spells the end for Talbot. Not that they play similar roles, but I don't think Shero wants to overpay to keep our fourth line intact. At least I hope not.
