Stupid move but something had to give.

Rupp can play center, but Konopka is one of the best faceoff guys in the league, and Mitchell can play center in a pinch too. So we have three centers on the fourth line. Not a concern.

Rupp adds size, but not where we need it. Basically we picked up a goon who plays slightly better than your average goon.
