Rupp isn't nearly as slow a skater as Ranger fans led us to believe. He's got a decent top gear once he's going, just not great acceleration. Since he skates primarily north and south, his top gear gets quite a bit of use.

He's definitely been an injection of something this team was needing. His board play is excellent, which I think his showing others what it takes has started to spread some of that up the lineup.
