The Rupp signing only irked me because the Rangers clearly planned on bringing Fedotenko back. They bring different things to the team, but they're both bottom 6 wingers and are taking spots from youth.
AD has been seriously impressive in what he's been asked to do from the coaching staff, not to mention he's tough as nails.
I'm one of EC's biggest haters and I'm trying to stay objective on the guy but at this point it's just...too hard. He's gotta go, and I don't think he's got any value any more. He's almost 28, hasn't stuck with a team longer than 3 years, and just has never tapped into the "offensive potential" that coaches have seen in him. He should be waived when WW and Rupp both return.
I think Avery becomes the healthy scratch (whether earned or not) and Rupp and WW hit the lineup.
But you always have to account for future injuries/slumps/trades.
