So many topics, I don't have time to write!!!
Personally, my belief that is for this team we have right here -- we need a heavy weight. Guys like Callahan and co will not back down and let a goon on another team run around without being challenged. If we don't have a goon, someone else would be fighting goons on other teams and I do not want guys like Callahan fight those guys... Or McI when he gets a shot in NY. Atleast not every game. We have lost alot of toughness already in Dubinsky and Prust.
I just think it makes sense to keep Rupper.
I get your point to, and I think its valid in general. Not just for this team.
