********. Ruutu definitely was never the same player he was his rookie season, but it was never due to lack of effort. His body doesn't allow him to be the checking line player he wants to be and his offensive skills just didn't translate here last year. Ruutu played hard for Chicago, and the only disapointment I have with him is in what could've been. Contracts with him usually are a pain in the rear, but once he put pen to paper, he was nothing but effort. It's very unfair to paint him off as a Yashin clone.
Champions overcome. Losers make excuses.
