The team needs a young, powerforward with size and toughness. The problem is, 29 other teams in the league want this type of player too.
Hagelin's not exactly a great defensive player. The issue when he was on the top line was they couldn't get open. No one could. I'm not saying Rupp's a great solution but it was worth a shot. I would have tried Boyle as well if you're looking for someone quicker and more defensively responsible.
