The New York Rangers have signed Mike Rupp to 3 year deal worth $4.5M.
Some people will say that this is overpayment for a fourth line player but I like the deal A LOT. Rupp is a tough guy who Rangers fans should know well since they faced him a lot as a NJ Devil and Penguin. Last year he even scored a hat trick against the Rangers.
He fills the enforcer role and is also pretty decent at faceoffs.
I'm happy with this deal. It's definitely a decent chunk in change but Rupp should be a good fit and he can do more than fight.
