Well I guess you can just about make a tenuous link between a phrase I used in the first line of my post and the last line. Pretty weak way to avoid addressing the actual point though.

For apparently necessary clarification, Rupp was more than a 'straight goon' (although his play has dropped off over the past two years). His signing was however greeted by a portion of the Rangers fanbase as a cure for their 'toughness issues' similar to the Boogard signing. In both cases they swiftly discovered that icing a heavyweight is not the magic cure that certain people assume.
