Mike Rupp Looking to Change His Number to #17

Rupp was asked via Twitter the following.

"@thenyrangers Question from @mgutierrez26 'Are you going back to number 17 this season?' #AskRupp"

He responded with this.

"'Yeah, I think so. That's been a number that's been with me for a while., and I really enjoy that number! Hopefully if I can get (No. 17) then another little part of me being entrenched here is in place!'-@Rupper17"

Original Tweet: http://twitter.com/thenyrangers/stat...71961195307008

Thoughts?

Is there any doubt that this board won't be able to handle a work stoppage?

As much as I am excited to have Nash, I miss Dubinsky. Home grown guy and one of my favorites over the past 5 years

I only found this intriguing because it's a little awkward given Rupp knew Dubinsky and that Dubinsky did not voluntarily leave the Rangers. It's not like some rookie that never met him taking his number, Rupp was his team mate, albeit for just one season, but that doesn't change the point. I don't think Dubinsky is really that bothered by it, I just doubt he expected someone that knew him to take his number, and not to mention with the intention to do it that quickly too.

I doubt he really cares. Rupper wasn't the one who traded him.

Dubi tweeted Rupp after the trade and told him he could take it.

Don't like Rupp, but I see no problem with this.

I really doubt Dubi would care in any scenario at all

i just hope this means rupp will be traded for more than he is worth soon and that number can have a new significance

I think dubi tweeted after the trade that rupp could take his #17 back

edit: can't find the tweet, but i vaguely remember reading that somewhere it might/must have not been on twitter

Thank God I waited to get my Rupp jersey.

I'm assuming he'll stick with #17 throughout his Rangers career, but should I wait until he gets his "A" to buy his jersey? Or can you just add that on later? Has anyone here tried that?

Upside or not it's probably the first time the words "wearing someone's jersey" and "mike rupp" have collided in the same sentence.
