The thing about Rupp I get, he's big and gritty.

The thing I don't get about this trade is, they want to be able to roll 4 lines right? So, we have Heater who yes, is obviously slow. Something Wild fans can't seem to ever make a post about him without mentioning. But by all accounts, Ranger fans say Rupp is borderline pylon as well. Doesn't seem like they're sticking to the uptempo/fast mantra with this move.
I think they are more looking to roll 3 lines that have the ability to score and then one line that just basically kicks people's ass.
