Rupp & Asham are 4th liners. You are right about them being a bit slow.
Was not a problem yesterday - but was against Boston (Asham was out). Not the traditional speed/energy injection we are used to on the 4th line. But I do not think Rupp has sucked at all really. Just not very noticable in limited time.
Pyatt has been better than most so far IMO. Not a speedster though.
Bickel, well yeah...
Forchecking has been bad so far.
On all the lines
Team seems totally unprepared for NHL play right now - except some of the players that were playing in Europe. Hank, Gaborik, staal and Richards particularly.
