I believe, and I could be wrong, that the though process for having Rupp with them, is to open the ice in the offensive zone by having a large body, and physical presence. Rupp can create some disturbance infront of the net and Stepan and Zuccarello can use their skill to create some chances.

Who knows if the theory will work, though. I guess we have to wait and see.

Id love to see Hagelin with Stepan and Zuccarello, though.
They aren't overly fast, but Rupp is terribly slow. Zucc and Steps are both playmakers, they need someone who could potential score. Fedotenko isn't a sniper, but he has more scoring prowess than Rupp. If Feds-Steps-Zucc becomes the 3rd line, who becomes the scorer?
