I know I shouldn't judge a player solely on their size, but I just can't see Rupert being able to translate the type of game he was drafted for over the the NHL with a 5'8" 186 lb frame. The crash-and-bang, in your face agitator/secondary scorer role worked great for him in the OHL, but I think he'll have to adjust if he wants to become an NHLer.
