I just think it's too early to be re-signing Michael Rupp. I could be wrong.
I don't know why it would be too early. If you're worried about the Pens strapping themselves financially to the point where they can't re-up TK, i think the Pens have most likely already decided a ceiling on how high they're willing to re-sign TK for, so i don't think signing Rupp for basically the same money has any bearing on it.
If i had to guess, Shero probably has determined which players he wants on the team if they're willing to accept his offer. If this rumor is true, Rupp was one of them, and he obviously accepted his offer.
