Yep. Outside of the Winter Classic, he really hasn't done anything for the Rangers. He was slow as **** last year because of the knee injury but even this year he isn't skating particularly well. I liked the signing at the time and like him as a player but he doesn't look as good as he used to.

As been mentioned also, the Rangers need depth. We have Stu Bickel playing the 4th line right now and Rupp was on the 3rd line. Palmieri is being sent to Connecticut for the time being though.
