Since our defense is so thin (and awful) Allen would get a much better chance to develop here. He could be another late bloomer like Jokinen who I had alreaady given up on as a NHL'er. And I think Ruuttu would be a solid addition to our third / fourth lines and may make some players think twice about cheapshotting his little brother.
Im not sure I would make this deal but I think it is a good proposal.
How about you take Nathan Dempsey and throw us back a third round pick so Allen, Ruutu, & a 3rd for Dempsey and a 1st.
No, no, no Behn
Allen is worth a second. If they want to give up a second to get him, great. Ruutu has some value, but I'm not sure what I'd trade to get him and brothers on the same team don't really have a great track record for team success. Losing Dempsey wouldn't be that big of a deal. But the 3rd and Ruttu doesn't close the gap on the first, imo.
