No one is answering why he would be a better option then players who are less expensive and could add more on the ice.
Other then, he's a veteran. And he was on some good teams. Or he may or may not possibly contribute...maybe... that's not what you want to hear when a guy makes 1.5.
Rupp is not a liability when he's on the ice. A guy like Deaveaux in an 82 season and the playoffs will be. At 1.5 he's below average salary for the Rangers, so I don't really see what the complaints are about.
After signing a UFA contract the guy is making 900k below league average.
The average NHL salary is $2.4 million
So if he's at or below average in most areas, he's getting paid exactly what he should be. /Thread
