BREAKING NEWS: the #NYR have acquired forward Darroll Powe and Nick Palmieri from MIN in exchange for forward Mike Rupp
— New York Rangers (@NYRangers) February 4, 2013
Powe will join the Rangers while Palmieri is headed to the CT Whale.
Powe is pointless in eight games with the Wild this season and carries a cap hit of $1,066,667 this year and next year.
Palmieri is pointless in nine games with the Wild this season.
…i like the move. Now that Rupp can't even win a fight, he was basically useless out there.
…obviously Torts completely lost confidence in Rupp as evidenced by his lack of playing time. Don't know much about either guy coming back, but if they were playing for the Wild they know how to play defense, which I'm sure Torts will like.
