Ottawa Sun? Must be true! Know he's not a winger but hearing Rupp just got traded is interesting. Ferguson has supposedly been scouting them and it could mean a few very different things.

1) The Sharks were scouting Rupp and wanted to acquire him, but got beat out by the Wild. This would make me very wary of the direction the team is trying to go in. Speed is needed, as is bottom 6 scoring. Rupp does both like Wellwood body checks.
2) The Rangers knew they were going to trade Rupp and are interested in Handzus as a 3rd line C. Depending on what comes back, fine. Handzus has looked pretty good this year, and is a weapon in the shootout.
3) Sharks are trying to trade for someone actually worthwhile like Hagelin/Kreider/etc. Great, again depending on the price.
4) Sharks were scouting Rags opponents 2 games in a row. Who knows?
5) Ferguson was doing routine scouting and the teams aren't even in the opening stages of trade talks.
