I liked the Rupp signing from day 1, I even was hoping they would sign him over last off-season. He is a veteran with a lot of experience and he is difficult to play against because of his size, strength and skating ability when healthy. He wasn't healthy all of last season. He is a warrior. Perfect tough-guy in this new NHL.

I am hoping Mashinter can turn into the same type of player. Develop his skating and his defensive game and he can carve out a NHL career. Offense is a plus, forechecking and defensive play are what will lead to him having a NHL career.
