I wouldn't be in favor of the one involving Ruutu with Roszival coming our way. I think he just had a bad year, a REALLY bad year, but he's better then that to be sure. But he's also nowhere near worth his cap hit and is overpaid this year at 6 mil. That alone would decimate our budget and tie him with Staal for our highest paid player.

I do like the idea of acquiring Zherdev if we can clear salary but we'd also need to clear a winger spot in the process. That is unless they are planning for our lines to look like this next year:
Ruutu-Staal-Zherdev
Whitney-Cullen-Cole
Samsonov-Jokinen-LaRose
Eaves-Brind'Amour-Walker (most expensive 4th line EVER)

And we'd STILL need to find a top 4 defenseman somewhere.
