I also noticed that Rupp started playing better once Newbury was on his line. He needs to play with grinders and forecheckers to play his game instead of EC and MZA. At some point, the Rangers are probably going to have to pick up or call up another 4th line type of player, because EC and Wolski aren't gonna cut it.
Yep. It is interesting seeing players who like to play the same type of game have success together. Pack Line. Boyle Line with Fedotenko. Now a Rupp/Newbury combination that needs a RWer.

I have said his name before but Chris Neil would look great on that line.

The Richards line looks good with Stepan as well. He is upping his physical play this year.
