That's exactly him. I would say that Rupp being 5 years younger than Sloan was really fortunate. The make or break point in Sloan's career was probably around 2005, and we all know what happened then.

There are probably quite a few borderline checking forward guys who are 26/27 years old right now, who are currently watching their NHL careers go down the drain.
