Trading Powe for Rupp is going to negate some of why the fourth was successful in possessing the puck in the other guys' zone. Not sure what the deal is here. must be part of a larger plan...or something behind the scene we don't know about.
It really must be, because Powe, while not producing, was a high energy- great forechecker that brought it night in and night out. Fast, not skilled though. Good PK. Perfect 4th liner.
