I'd also love to hear about Ross/McKegg/Abbott and their rookie progress so far. How do things look for them? #s on the first two seem underwhelming
R Rupert is mostly a pest. He plays well defensively (he is very often on the ice protecting a 1 goal lead in the final minute of play). More of a playmaker. Already said it but he really gets under people's skin. I remember at the Mem Cup last year Huber took a run at him (taking a penalty) less than a minute into the game based off a reputation just to send a message that he wasn't going to let him get under his skin (to me Rupert got mission accomplished though since Huber went to the box ). Rupert won't wow you offensively which I think he will have to start doing a little if he wants to make it to the NHL because he is pretty small.
