Ruutu can play all three forward positions. That's the main reason Carolina acquired him at the deadline, a player like that is excellent to have. Right now he's proving a hard guy to sign, talks have stalled and Rutherford hasn't spoken to him in over a week. He's got a distorted sense of his value, it seems. It's like he thinks he's still the same player who was once the best player outside the nhl and not the third liner he's become. I wouldn't be surprised to see him traded but you won't get him cheap. Moving Ladd for him was a mistake in the first place so he won't be given away for spare parts. One rumor I've seen so far was him and a 2nd for Pitkanen.
