This, but I think we'll try to trade EC or WW for AHLers, or a pick. Devaux has impressed me more than Rupp though tbh

Deveaux and Avery should both stay in the lineup.

it's not a stupid pickup. The guy will chip in this yr.

as for what happens it's pretty simple as Deveaux will go down and they will have one spare F. Rupp in for Deveaux and Wolski sits until someone sucks or someone gets hurt.

A lot can happen in a few weeks

Rupp is a 4th liner.

Deveaux is a 4th liner.

Feds, Boyle and Prust are better suited on the 4th line.

We have WAY TOO MANY 4th liners on the roster.

Deveaux is more effective then Rupp, for a fraction of the price.

Wolski can take Avery/Christensen's spot.

Deveaux should stay in the lineup.

Rupp should be rotting in the AHL.

Some people are way too hard on Rupp. He looked mediocre in his first 7 games here, so now he belongs in the AHL? Come the **** on. He has been a very solid fourth line player throughout his career. Way too quick to write him off.

He has been a full time player on good Pittsburgh and NJ teams for the past five years. Now he sucks because he didn't impress in seven games here. Got it.

Rupp played a few of those games with a bum knee. Maybe all of them.

totally agree. It's just like the "this team sucks" thread after they started in Europe and then Western Canada.

Yeah, I don't understand all the Rupp hate. It's a bit ridiculous. I think EC and Deveauex are gone when Rupp and WW come back. I would like to see EC traded though.

Nothing against Rupp at all, although with the amount of 4th line talent this club has both in NYC, and in the wings of Hartford, I don't think it was a completely necessary signing. However yes, he is an excellent 4th liner and made a good career out of it. Deveaux has not been bad though, in his stead.

QFMFT. He's played 7 games with a bum knee, as bobbop said...and that's enough to pass judgment on him when he was a key bottom-6 on a contender the past two seasons, apparently.

He's not a 3rd liner, though.

He's a 4th liner.

We already have too many 4th liners here.

Play him with Boyle and Prust and get two 3rd liners to play with Fedotenko.

The Rupp signing only irked me because the Rangers clearly planned on bringing Fedotenko back. They bring different things to the team, but they're both bottom 6 wingers and are taking spots from youth.

AD has been seriously impressive in what he's been asked to do from the coaching staff, not to mention he's tough as nails.

I'm one of EC's biggest haters and I'm trying to stay objective on the guy but at this point it's just...too hard. He's gotta go, and I don't think he's got any value any more. He's almost 28, hasn't stuck with a team longer than 3 years, and just has never tapped into the "offensive potential" that coaches have seen in him. He should be waived when WW and Rupp both return.

I think Avery becomes the healthy scratch (whether earned or not) and Rupp and WW hit the lineup.

But you always have to account for future injuries/slumps/trades.

Into more than a third liner?

Maybe he could be a solid second liner, but his projection is an excellent third line player who could fill in as a 2nd liner in a pinch. Kind of like a Lauri Korpikosi (who we could really use right now, btw, instead of the nothingness of that Lisin guy).

I like Deveaux, but I also am more than willing to give Rupp a chance to prove himself on a healthy knee.

Avery has continued to earn his spot in the line-up and should not get sat. Wolski and or EC should be sent packing.

yea Korpedo is one that got away. It really was out of character cause he would fit this system perfectly. They rolled the dice on Lisin just like they are doing with Wolski now

Hagelin / Korpikoski comparison is a good one. I expect Hagelin to be the same type of player

Deveaux and Boyle.

Deveaux i don't have any real problem with
Boyle on the other hand, has been the useless tool that he was 2 seasons ago that does absolutely NOTHING right on the ice.

(sorry zenith )

you know how the brass does it.... drury scored a backbreaking goal against us in the playoffs--we sign him. gaborik scored 5 against us in one game---we sign him (granted, not the following season) brashear took out one of our best faceoff guys. what do we do so he doesnt take anybody else out on the team? we sign him. rupp had a hatty against us last year---we sign him. i hope parise does something horrible against us this year

For what Rupp provides... what exactly does he provide?... he's not worth the money he's being paid. Plain and simple. Deveaux is a better skater, works the boards fine, fights, hits, and has a nice blend of cockiness.

The extra cash Rupp is being paid, can be allocated elsewhere at the trade deadline.

I could care less that Rupp was on winning teams in the past, he's still not worth his contract right now. And that's what matters: now.

We are complaining about goals, and we are wasting 1.5 for the next 3 years on a guy who has 50 NHL goals in over 500 games...

1.5 could be used toward (meaning, Rupp's money and someone else's) a player that can score, at the deadline. Deveaux fills Rupp's role for a little over 500K. That's a full mil less.
