Minnesota obviously wanted more size in the bottom-6. I am unfamiliar with the style of play Minnesota employs but the Rangers employ a very up-tempo style. Rupp just couldn't quite keep up. Hence why Powe makes more sense. The Rangers also lost Dubinsky and Prust over the off-season who helped stir the pot.

Rupp will be fine, he will score 3-5 goals a year and have 7-10 assists or so. He will drop the gloves with anyone but he isn't going to win very many. Good locker room guy.
