now for Rypien to take on McGratton because clearly Hordichuk will not anymore. Prust would have no problem obliging Hordichuk.
McGratton is out of Rypien's league, I think it's unfair to expect him to now fight guys like McGratton, Boogard, etc. As for Hordichuk not taking him on I couldn't tell who was attempting to fight who, and who was declining the invitation - Hordichuk went over to groups of Flames players several times and both him and McGratton jawed but nothing came of it.
It is interesting how Prust and Stortini have adapted to fighting Rypien, good for them for learning from their earlier defeats, hopefully Rypien switches up his technique in order to demote them to their former punching bag status.
