Mike Rupp

Mike Rupp hasn't been that good as a Ranger...he has either been hurt,looked very useless on the ice and very slow.....why couldn't a cheaper Deveaux do the same as Rupp, its not like Rupp is doing anything noticeable....well he did push Marty...I always liked Rupp as I player but maybe injuries caught up to him...any other opinions??

Last year I thought the Rangers were a good hockey team. I think didn't really know how to win, however. This is supported by the fact that they turned a +35 goal differential into only 93 points. They were a bunch of kids that really didn't have the veteran direction they needed.

I don't think its any coincidence that in the first 24 hours of free agency, the Rangers signed Richards, Fedotenko and Rupp -- three guys that have won and know what what it takes to do so at this level. This year their goal differential increased four goals and they got another 16 points out of it. They had a better grasp on the skill of winning.

Rupp's on-ice performance has been mediocre for sure, but taking him out for Deveaux would be incredibly short-sighted.

With all the issues up front with this team, it never ceases to amaze me when a thread like this pops up.

I thought Rupp was one of the better forwards last night until his temper tantrum

Brodeur complained to the refs = penalty

he got called for two roughings. so the first one they deemed that he got the hands up seemingly. i mean he had his hands high, but it's because the other guy ducked into them last second.

Don't think so. After the initial hit I believe it was O'Rourke signaled him to the locker room BEFORE he pushed Marty.

As much I would love to believe that Fatso has leverage over the refs...I believe that the refs themselves are just biased towards ridiculous calls.

Mike Rupp is hardly the problem here. In fact, Rupp should be getting more time and seeing different line combos. He's practically the only player on the team that can carry the puck, absorb pubishment, and keep going.

I hope to never see Andre Deveaux don a Ranger sweater again, and would be genuinely shocked if he ever carves out a career as an NHL regular. He's a scrub, and fancies himself a much better player than he actually is. Tries to do way too much with the puck.

What's weird is it seems like after every playoff game, I find myself saying Rupp had a pretty solid game yet he hasn't recorded a point yet. I think he's played fine but he's gotta get on the score sheet once in a while.

I'm not defending Rupp or his play, but I just wanted to mention that he did score 2 big goals in the Winter Classic -- a moment most Rangers will always remember.

I mean, we're talking about a checking line player. Those types aren't exactly supposed to be goal scorers, flying around the ice creating space and offensive chances. He fills his role. We should spend less time wondering why Rupp isn't going above and beyond his role and more time wondering why Richie, Gabby, and such aren't performing within their own given roles.

pretty sure Rupp left his feet. it might not have been by much but it was enough for the ref to use it as cause but since the boxscore says they called him for charging, I find myself confused.

I wouldn't be surprised... but a misconduct for a 2 minute roughing call on a check would not make any sense.

I thought his tantrum was the best part of what was a good game for him. For God sakes at least someone showed a little emotion

Rupp was one of the better Rangers out there tonight. I could understand this thread a little bit during one of the games where he did nothing but c'mon.

Brodeur is a ***** and took a nice flop. Not like Rupp pushed him hard at all. He's a baby even at 40 years of age

I'd love to see what Rupp could do with more ice time. The Penguins
Gave him more ice time than the Rangers. He scored 13 goals on the fourth line for the Pitts. Grit becomes more important in the Playoffs than finesse.

I wanted to puke, when he said he found out he could take a punch. I'd like to see a compilation video of all his flops during his career. The trouble is it would exceed the time limits for Youtube

Rupp was fine, that hit wasn't a penalty the refs wanted to control the game and send a message. the love tap to Martina drew the extra 2 min, But the smack down on Bernie was priceless, He leaped and Rupp slapped him to the Ice like a nat.
