Neither can Rupp.
Terribly overrated player. Not a good fighter, slow as ****, rarely engages physically and is prone to injury.
He is living off of reputation as a 'big game player', which he scored the GWG vs. the Ducks in 2003. He only played in 4 playoff games that year.
Rupp was never a regular PKer his entire career, he has a mediocre fight record too. He was probably decent on the forecheck in his prime, but he is way past that.
Truly one of the more overrated 4th liners in the game. Crap offensively, crap defensively and punching bag for the opposition.
