Im not fan of Mike Rupp on the 3rd line. But Im even less of a fan of pretending an AHL transaction will be a better option.
There are a plethora of examples of 25 year olds establishing themselves as NHL regulars in the bottom 6 when they land in the right spot. Hell, Mike Rupp himself was barely established as a 25 year old.

Based on what I've read, I think Ferriero has an opportunity to be a better fit for our 3rd line than Rupp is, at equal production. But he will have to earn it, so no problems starting on the 4th from my standpoint.
