Not the pure pugilist, Prust is going to have to teach this guy how to throw them a bit better.

That line gives you 34 fights and 43 goals. Damn that's a fine 4th line, especially as all 3 guys are pains in the ass to play against without having to drop the gloves.

3.3 million for two-thirds of our fourth line.

Our fourth line at present of Asham, Letestu and Adams makes about 1.8 combined.

1.5 is Rupp and Prust is like 800K so u do the math again. Although Avery at 2 million likely rounds it out, lol

Boyle likely gets moved up to LW

While that is true, not every team has 17+ million dollars tied up in 2 players.

Would have rather saw Rupper go elsewhere. He is being overpaid by the Rangers for sure. Pens probably weren't offering him near that price. Otherwise, good luck to him in New York.

So I have to imagine Fedetenko is out of the picture now. If so, I like this a lot... if not way too redundant.

Terrible completely non truthful comment. Rupp has wins over tons of heavyweights and super heavy's. Prust is more the light weight then Rupp God man get it str8

I'll miss Rupp. Not sure how he's going to drive his monster looking truck around NYC

He's a really good guy. Definitely can't believe he got what he got. He'll play about 10 min a night on the 4th line. Stick up for his teammates. Doesn't play any special teams. One or two games a year he'll remind you why he was a 7th overall pick at one point.

Good luck Rupper...

The Rangers might as well be sponsored by Subway because of all the grinders they have on the roster...

Well... I was wrong. I guess fourth line now looks like:

Prust - Rupp - Fedetenko

So Boyle better be able to repeat last season playing more minutes on the third line. Also, would have thought we'd want to keep Prust/Boyle/Fedetenko together because of how well they played, but there's no way Rupp would play on a higher line. A little confused about how it's going to shake out now.

ZomG what will we do?

I can't believe we wasted 3.3M of our 64M cap on a 4th line.



And yea, your 4th line is terrible.

Overpaid but he brings his lunch pail every day. Not a bad move by the Rags.

3.3 million is the sum total of two-thirds of our fourth line, Rupp and Talbot - like I've already said. I don't care what the Rangers fourth line looks like. Understand?

Or do you need me to provide a diagram?

The problem is you're posting on a Rangers signing thread...about what last year's Penguins 4th line is going to make next year. No body here cares.

Rupp is a Hell of a guy in the locker room and off the ice, but he's just an average grinder on it. He frustrated the Hell out of the Pens' fan base all season by taking absolutely idiotic and avoidable penalties. To add to it, he will fight often, but he's not a very good fighter for his size at all.

At $1.5M I'd say he's easily over-payed. At least you guys didn't give Talbot twice his value for half a decade.

As a Rangers fan, I'm happy with this signing. Nastiest fourth line in the league. Prust-Rupp-Avery/Fedetenko

Rupp absolutely hates Avery. Despises in fact. I don't get how you put them on the same line. I still find this a very odd choice for Rupp.

Also, hilarious pic of him from a couple years ago.

Because he's a part of the team and so is avery. Rupp will play where torts tells him to. He joined the team knowing avery was on it. Avery has been a longtime member of this squad and has many friends, Rupp is a newb, they will end up getting along just fine.

Funny you think they can't play on the same line. There both 4th line players, they'll play minutes together this year, bank on it.
