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.
So, basically the type of team the Wild have been trying for? So, yeah I don't get the addition of Rupp here. I get the bigger thing, but such downgrade in speed. Just seems to go away from the plan.
