If its for pure cap reasons, you're paying a 3rd round pick to absorb an extra 200k in cap hit. Makes no sense.
So you want dead cap space? From what I understand the AHL salary that counts is around 375K so Rupps hit would be more than a million, may be wrong on that.
If he is sent down he is automatically going to be replaced on the roster with a player making around 800K anyways. Most players make atleast that, even Gilroy, Eminger do........not sure what's the big deal in moving the guy in a deal with a 3rd rounder to get a useful player like a Gordon to help now
