For the most part. However, Prust and Rupp are not all that talented. They're talented in their roles, but their roles are limited. They might be able to skate circles around Janssen and co., but they aren't going to be doing that against other teams top six forwards (which is what I'm afraid Torts is going to match them up against).

I'm by no means an enforcer advocate, and I do believe that the game is leaning toward removing the enforcer role, so having Rupp and Prust is a good thing. I'm just concerned that they'll be over-used and over-relied upon when really they are just bottom six role players.
