I was thrilled when we signed him.
But....he is not the player he was then. That Rupp had some skill and was a valuable member of the team. Now, because of age or injuries he has lost a lot of what made him a good hockey player. Now, he is only good for fighting and he is a terrible fighter. Whenever he fights we lose momentum instead of gaining it.
I know he's probably good in the locker room and his physical presence is welcomed by his teammates when he is on the ice.
But, his time as a Ranger is coming to a close. Don't blame or dislike him for any of this. It just is what it is.
Agreed on all counts. Fighter/Physical players only have a certain number of fights/years in the tank. I think Rupp is past his expiration date.
