Have you watched both of them play? If you would have, you wouldn't have such a hard time understanding the comment.

Obviously Rupp is on the decline, but a younger player in his mould that can play with grit and not be a liability on the ice would be fantastic.
p.s. your argument once again was just another logical fallacy, this time it was :

Answer me this, you've never watched Kassian play. Right? I mean, if you had, we wouldn't even be having this discussion.
I've watched enough of Minnesota play to know Kassian can play 5 minutes every 3 games for an NHL team lacking of a tough guy.

As for Rupp, he's not an effective guy who can play 12-13 minutes anymore. Not even close.
