If Rupp plays his cards right and doesn't care where he plays, he'll be the Boogaard of this offseason. I could see him getting as much as 2M from certain teams. If he wants to win a Cup, he still gets a slight raise and gets to pick any team he wants to play for.

He's already won a cup and while he's a much better player than Boogaard he's nowhere near as good a fighter. Spending 2 million on him would be absolutely stupid.

well Boogaard is getting more money than Vinny Prospal but whos the better player. Rupp is better than Boogaard as a player and should get more. Rupp can play on the PK from time to time as Boogaard never has



i can see a team like the sabres islanders or devils sign rupp.

I can see him getting a hefty raise if he tests free agency, not sure about 2 million but 1.1-1.6 most likely. His fighting is not top 5 but he can handle himself well against any fighter. And he can play decent hockey. These last couple of offseasons have had that one top dog enforcer thats gets a raise. This year it will be Rupp. If he goes into free agency.

Devils already let Rupp go so I don't see them trying to get him back. If anything Boogaard and Shelley's contracts will put off smart GMs from signing 4th liners to big money.

Yotes GM in a web chat a week ago said he was looking for a partner for Biz Nasty and to beef up his bottom lines.

Bowman wants Big Scott to get more ice time (interview) next season. Have to see to believe.

Chris Simon most likely wont be back in the KHL this year from what GM Alexei Zhamnov said. Dyanmo Moscow aint interested. Not suprised considering his age.

Sorry no links.

Pens talking contract with Rupp. Hope they get it done.
No link but rumor is KHL (Vityaz) is interested in Big Mac.

Updated/tweaked my list and removed some borderline MW to make it easier to read.
Interested in seeing which HW Sather brings in, he always has one.

Mike Rupp might be close to resigning. Read on Pens board it could be a 2 year deal, 875k per. Good for Pitt if true.

It sounds like the Oilers are going to let MacIntyre walk. I don't think it's the right move. We're no where near a cap team. Why not have the best enforcer as a 13/14th forward at league minimum? I'm not looking forward to Hall, Eberle Paajarvi, RNH and Hemsky having their show run next season.

Konopka most likely wont be resigned, wants to stay. Gillies to be resigned soon possibly a 2 way. Haley might get a one way, 50k raise.

Edit: Someone already beat me to it.

Adams resigned with Pit. 2 years 625k per. Updated list with Adams signing, Mac walking, and Islanders enforcer plans.

Maybe thier going to let Stortini have another crack at it? He didnt look that bad in the AHL. And he is pretty good on the forecheck too.

Mike Rupp might be testing FA market. He feels the market will treat him well. Dont think contract talks are as far as some of us previously thought.

http://64.6.203.99/SITES/obj_nouvell...I=&L=F&ID=3312 Link is in a different language. Found it on the AHL board

Even though he only played 2 games in the NHL, Louis Robitalle calls it quits to coach. He really knew how to stir the pot in the AHL.

Godard will not be resigned.

Rupp will also be looking for a new team.

Shelley also a likely buy out candidate this summer. (Not a solid source so take it with a lot of salt)

I don't know if I would call Rupp a "Fighter" He loses a lot of fights against guy you would think he could at least tackle. He is a great all around 4th liner but not so much of an enforcer.
