Palmieri I think was more of a throw in. He's P.O.'d the Wild brass a few times now. Been on the block since camp.
[EDIT]: From Russo's blog:
The Wild has traded Darroll Powe to the New York Rangers for Michael Rupp, sources have confirmed.
Nick Palmieri, a right winger playing in Houston, was also part of the deal, as he goes to the Rangers as well.
Rupp, a 6-foot-5, 230-pounder, has 53 goals and 94 points in 565 games. He is a tough, tough customer that will add grit to the Wild lineup. He has 78 career fights.
More soon, but Powe was to be a healthy scratch tonight at Phoenix. Now we know why.
It's become very clear the Wild needs to get bigger and grittier. This is a start.
As I said.
