I think Sather perhaps had a similar thought to mine about too many guys on the bottom 6 who weren't contributing on the penalty kill.
Powe led the Wild forwards in short handed time on ice per game last season.
His skating is superb. He can skoot around the ice with the best of them and he doesn't peel off when he sees someone near him with the puck. I can not even tell you how excited I am to add Powe to a team that needed this type of player.
Rupp is making $1.2M next season. Powe is making $1.15M. Palmieri is on a 2 way. $65,000 AHL. $577,500 NHL. Group II in the summer. Rupp is making $1.6M this season. Powe is making $1.1M. Minny took on money. Have they seen Rupp play?
I watched Powe play at Princeton for 4 years, always one of my fave Tigers, was always pissed that Rangers never drafted any Princeton players. Halpern was a good one, we are getting him way too late of course.
Trying to replace Prust - check
Bring in younger tough guys over Rupp - Check
Cheap moves, lets see how that worksout.
Yeah, love this move. Powe + Halpern will be great for the PK and grittiness. Both skate well.
Powe may not be as skilled of a fighter as Prust but he brings the same energy.
I hope this means the Rangers like Mashinter's game.
Very solid move. I always liked Palmieri's skill set, so maybe he can do something and learn a little in the AHL. Powe is a good fit. And like someone said, could open up a spot for someone else to come in and play.
Yeah, but this part is confusing to me. There's a few guys I want to replace.
Realistically Bickel is the only guy I'd replace right now, since Powe will take Rupp's place. They might feel that Kreider will be back this week and don't want to bring a guy up just to send him back down
this seriously made my afternoon, see ya later rupp, i always liked powe with the flyers very prust-esq type player, also played two seasons with asham in philly so hopefully the have some chemistry and can fore check well together
sather pulled another one out of his hat, Rupp is on a serious decline i can only imagine whats hes going to look like next season
