What we lose here is size and a guy willing to drop the gloves with anyone. We have Bickel for that, and we're not a small team anyway (even if I would have prefered a bigger dude like Skille as I mentioned earlier today).

What we gain is a guy who's better or equal to Rupp at pretty much every other facet of the game, we make our fourth line a lot faster, we send some long overdue help to CT and add a guy that can chip in on the fourth line in case of injuries too?

Not like its a major trade, but Sather sure as hell won this one.

Risebrough isn't the Wild's GM. Ironically, he's part of the Rangers organization.

Just doing some reading over on the wild section.

They seem to view it as a "meh" type trade. They liked Powe, but have plenty of a pk guys. And they wanted more size and toughness.

But not overly excited about the deal like we are.

All I know about both is when Powe played with Philly and he was a pretty heavy hitter and Palmieri played a bit with Jersey.

What type of players do we have here?
Powe -
Great Pker
Shot blocker
Hitter
good forechecker

The best way I can describe him is Callahan minus the offensive skills, although he isn't a void on offense


Palmieri -
Big kid
Will drop the gloves
Lazy
Should be a NHLer if he can put in a routine effort

This is the 3rd transaction made by the Rangers since the lockout ended. The Mashinter trade. Ferriero. Rupp deal. They tried to sign Arnott.

Plain and simple: #mnwild need to get bigger. Rupp makes the bottom 2 lines tougher. Powe was playing 4th line, limited role, expendable

Minnesota last year was TERRIBLE at scoring goals. On top of that they had him playing on their 3rd/4th line which was totally devoid of any sort of offensive pressure.

Sather and Fletcher have made two trades. Crusher for Wellman which became a 7th for Wellman and then became a 5th in 2014 from FLA for Wellman. The deal today.

It's funny. The whale started the season as a team where Christian Thomas had to fight for himself. Now they added mash and palmeri, and mcilrath is back

Rupp is a good guy and well respected in the room, but his skills have been on a steep decline. He's lost another step or two and isn't the intimidating fighter he once was. We get a guy with good wheels who can play a regular shift for us and won't be a liability. Can't complain.

question for NYR fans, why they don't call up Haley. The guy is the perfect 4th liner!

I liked this trade a lot.

I would also like to thank Mike Rupp for his performance in the Winter Classic.

He has been absolutely invisible in Hartford and is rumored to be pretty discontent and wanting out of the organization.

I'll take this trade any day for NY. Guess I'll get to see Palmieri this weekend when the Whale take on the Ice Caps.

He has had an up and down season so far with the Whale and other players were ahead of him on the depth chart. Depending on what happens, the Rangers may call him up at some point this season. Mashinter would seem to be the better player and he is a legit heavy.

Powe actually dropped the mitts with Prust when he was in Philly, however he is not a fighter like a Prust. He is a more of a gamer that will drop the mitts from titme to time. Think Boyle, Dubi etc. <--Not in terms of style, stritcly in terms of fighting. Not going to win fights but will answer the bell. Has fought much tougher opposition. Carkner, Dennis Bonvie, Ott all on his fight card. He also got Letand to drop the mitts as well.

As RB pointed out already:

Powe will be a UFA at the end of next season

Palmieri will be a RFA at the end of this season

Nailed it. If Rupp can find his offense from his days in PIT, this could be one of those win/win type deals.

They must be trying to stack the Whale roster because they are trying to pull additional kids up from Whale to NYR
