The line (Welychka Rupert Rupert) No matter what people say. "Welychka is a third Rupert. (LFP) He is not even close to a 3rd Rupert. Yeah they hang out in the summer, grew up playing against each other, and attend Leafs Development camp together But they have total different playing styles! No matter how much Dale wants Brett to be more of a Rupert (Pesty, Hard hitting) He is not that player, and will not be that player.

If you want to maximize his offensive upside, play him with Broadhurst, If not, move him. Windsor would love him, he could be a 2nd Clarke as those to also hang out in the summer. (Joke)
Patterson maybe ready to go but not playing a game in 6 weeks will say something different. Especially against a team with this much offense and pressure.

Welychka isn't a Rupert he's a smarter player then that. I don't think you'll see most people saying that he is.. aside from a select few ....
